Who are you?#

I’m Michael Sieler, a Microbiology Ph.D. student minoring in Biological Data Science in the Sharpton Lab at Oregon State University (OSU).

What is your background?#

Briefly, I got my bachelor’s degree in Bioresource Research with a focus in Bioinformatics and Genomics at Oregon State University.

Throughout my undergrad I conducted research alongside Ph.D. students and post-docs as well as independently. These experiences catalyzed my interest in studying the gut microbiome, and led me to join the Sharpton Lab for graduate school.

What do you do now?#

I’m in my third year of my Ph.D program. My research focuses on how environmental factors (diet, pollutants, pathogens, etc.) impact the gut microbiome to influence host health using the zebrafish model organism.

What is this site for?#

The goal of this site is to provide a central location to share my research and work experience, projects and blog.

How can I contact you?#

The best way to reach me is through email.
