  • About

    Evan received his PhD in Bioinformatics and Systems Bioogy from Boston University, where in addition to gaining expertise in the analysis of multi-omic data sets, he identified his passion for understanding the function and evolution of microbial systems. During his postdoc, Evan developed deep interests in the application of genomics to study healthcare associated infections, and his newly formed lab aims to continue this line of research which bridges basic and clinical realms.
