Communication Fellow Alum
Georgia started her PhD in the MIT Biological Engineering Department in 2012. She currently is an NSF Fellow and a member of Paul Blainey’s lab, investigating the microbes of our lungs and developing new tools for microbial analysis. Georgia completed her undergraduate degree at Rice University, where she majored in Bioengineering but spent most of her free time thinking about leadership and serving in student government. She found a love for mentoring and tutoring students, and she spent 3 years volunteering as a peer tutor. Here at MIT, she has served as a TA for Biological Engineering Design (20.380). When not in lab, Georgia enjoys exploring the outdoors (by foot, bike, and boat), stumbling across live music, and attempting new culinary feats.
