Andrea Knowlton, Ph.D.

Andrea is starting her third year as a postdoc at the University of Florida. She’s been with the Wallet lab since 2013, and has thoroughly enjoyed (despite her best efforts) generating a ton of negative data over the past year. After spending an inordinate amount of time working with Chlamydia, Andrea received her PhD from the University of Florida in 2012. If you’re still paying attention you’ve realized that Andrea has been in Gainesville for quite some time… She also got her BS in microbiology here – the year isn’t important, but she does remember that the lab’s favorite Mexican place used to be a Blockbuster. Andrea loves microscopy, and cell biology, and host-pathogen interactions, and she’s really starting to like this immunology business. Andrea is an ESFJ.
