She is currently a 4th year PhD candidate in Immunology at the University of Calgary studying with Dr. Paul Kubes in the Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases. Her research focuses on the role of monocytes during a localized Staphylococcus aureus skin infection and she uses multiphoton intravital microscopy to investigate molecular mechanisms of monocyte function and bacterial evasion of the immune system. Rachel has expertise in computational image analysis techniques with Imaris.
