Noteworthy Graduate Narrative

Bindhu Michael obtained her M.S. in 2001 and published a first author paper in the Journal of Bacteriology. She then obtained her Ph.D. in Veterinary Biosciences at OSU and is now working in industry.

Amber Lindsay obtained her M.S. in 2006 and published a first author paper in the Journal of Bacteriology and a middle author on a PLOS One paper. She is currently working at Battelle in Columbus Ohio.

Jenee Smith obtained her Ph.D. in 2007, eventually publishing seven papers from this work. She published three papers in Journal of Bacteriology, one as first author and two as second author. She also had a co-first author on a PLOS One paper, a second author on a book chapter, a middle author on a PLOS One paper and a middle author on a MPMI paper. She presented her work at three meetings, the Midwest Microbial Pathogenesis meeting in 2002, the ASM conference on Cell to Cell Signaling in 2004, and the ASM conference on Salmonella in 2006. For this last meeting, Jenee was awarded a Student Travel Award. She is currently working at Battelle in Columbus Ohio.

Jessica Dyszel obtained her Ph.D. in 2009. She is first author on a Journal of Bacteriology paper, an author on a book chapter and co-first author on two PLOS One papers. She has presented at four meetings, the Ohio Branch of the ASM meeting in 2003 and 2004, and the ASM national meeting in 2004 and 2008. She is currently working at Richter International in Columbus Ohio.
