We are thrilled to welcome new graduate student Laurel Meke to our group! Laurel comes to us with much expertise in applications of untargeted and targeted LC-MS. She worked at SECIM (Southeastern Center for Integrated Metabolomics) prior to joining our lab, where she gained a great deal of experience with sample preparation, extractions, and general LC-MS troubleshooting. Now, she will apply and expand her chemistry knowledge to address research questions on marine microbes! Her research interests are to understand how the metabolism of red-tide Karenia brevis is influenced by environmental factors and interactions with other microbes. Welcome, Laurel!
