Sean Patev joined our lab as a PhD student in August, so this is a belated welcome. Sean did his undergraduate work at UMass Amherst in Microbiology, and then completed a Master’s degree at Cornell University, where he worked in Bill Fry’s lab on Phytophthora infestans. Sean brings experience in molecular biology including transcriptomics, and other technical skills. This image shows Sean demonstrating a 3-D printer to students at Cornell. Welcome Sean!
