Elizabeth is a 3rd year Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Environmental Health Science. Her research in Dr. Jia-Sheng Wang’s lab focuses on prevention strategies for age-related neurodegeneration by targeting the gut microbiome. She is in the process of evaluating the protective effects of tea catechins and their resulting metabolites on gut microbiome composition and implicated neurodegeneration by using an in vivo transgenic Parkinson’s Disease mouse model. Elizabeth completed her Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2018 from Georgia Southern University, then her Master of Public Health with a concentration in Environmental Health Science from the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health at Georgia Southern University in 2020. She is involved with the EHS Graduate Student Association and Scientific Research and Education Network (SciREN) here at the University of Georgia.
