University of Notre DameNotre Dame, IN
Becky received a BS in Zoology and recently completed a MS in Molecular Biology at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, studying the phylogeography, population genetics, and phylogenetics of whitefish (Prosopium) in western North America. She states that while she will forever love whitefish, she would like to focus her future work on environmental problems induced by humans. Humans have tremendous impacts on their environment, but the altered environments in turn will have severe impacts on humans. "I would like to explore these relationships, especially in the role of infectious diseases, and encourage societies to better care for their environments by illustrating these interactions," said Becky. "GLOBES is a great opportunity to explore this dilemma from multiple view points, and I look forward to working with other GLOBES participants. I'm grateful for this opportunity to be a pioneer in the GLOBES program and am excited to be at Notre Dame. It's going to be a difficult journey, but one with great potential in improving our world."
Outside of school and work, Becky enjoys practicing Aikido, reading, traveling, and spending time with her husband.
