Stefanie has been a postdoctoral fellow in the Finlay lab since 2013. Her research interests centre on understanding how bacteria survive life in the challenging conditions of the mammalian gut. More specifically, her current work focuses on how enterohemorrhagic E. coli interacts with the resident microbes of the human intestine. Stefanie holds a PhD in Microbiology & Biotechnology from the University of Alberta, where her research examined gene regulation in enteropathogenic E. coli. Her MSc research at the University of Calgary focused on how Pseudomonas aeruginosa adapts to nutrient starvation. Stefanie is a strong believer in the importance of science outreach and communication and has shared her love of science with the public through involvement with Let’s Talk Science, Science World BC, and other organizations.
Interesting facts: Outside of the lab, Stefanie enjoys cooking, learning to play the cello, and the quintessentially Canadian hobby of curling.
