Ashley Beck will be defending her thesis at this week's seminar.
Ashley Beck is a Ph.D. candidate at MSU in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology and the CBE. She works with Dr. Ross Carlson on an integrated approach to studying microbial community interactions by combining in silico metabolic modeling with in vitro laboratory experiments and using ecological theory as a basis for interpretation. Her doctoral dissertation provides insight into rationale for microbial community structure and highlights the role of environmental stress, particularly byproduct inhibition, in driving consortia interactions. Ashley has worked at the CBE under the supervision of Dr. Ross Carlson since 2012. She received her undergraduate degree in biology and mathematics from Central College in Pella, IA.
