Maria Martinelli

I am a Ph.D. student pursuing a degree in Biomedical Sciences. I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Detroit Mercy and a Master of Science in Genetics and Genomics from the University of Florida.  

I am interested in the evolutionary dynamic of Vibrio cholerae. Specifically, I study evolution of V. cholerae in both the environment and host. 

Outside of lab, I enjoy spending time playing with my corgis and cooking.
