A Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Investigator and winner of the NSF early CAREER Award. 

Fields of Research

Dr. Pickering’s lab leverages advanced tools in molecular microbiology to better understand how to interrupt environmental transmission pathways of enteric pathogens and drug resistant bacteria in high-disease burden settings. Her lab also designs and evaluates novel water and sanitation technologies and interventions to reduce infectious disease, with a focus on products that minimize the user burden for adoption. 




Researchers who would like to share their studies are welcome to submit an abstract for a poster session.
