My passion is understanding the functions and mechanisms of microbial communities in the environment. Through the IQ Biology program, in my first year I have had the ability to study this microscopic world through the lens of ecology, biogeochemistry, and molecular biology. Additionally, the IQ biology program has enabled and supported me in acquiring a diversity of computer programming skills that have been immediately useful in my work with genomic bioinformatics and proteomic data analysis.
Corinne received a BS degree from Lewis and Clark College and majored in Biology. Originally rostered in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, Corinne transitioned to the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. She rotated with Dr. Noah Fierer in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Dr. Sebastian Kopf in the Department of Geological Sciences, and Dr. Shelley Copley in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology. Corinne joined the Fierer lab in May 2018.
