Alex is a molecular biologist seeking to incorporate computational biology into the study of infectious disease and host-pathogen interactions. She is currently using comparative genomics and transcriptomics to identify bacterial and host factors that govern persistent bacterial infections. Before joining the Broad Institute, she received her PhD in biology from New York University where she studied the endosymbiotic relationship between parasitic nematodes and the bacterial endosymiont, Wolbachia.
