Josh graduated from the University of North Georgia with a B.S. in Biology. There, he studied the population dynamics of Staphylococcus aureus persister cells under multi-drug antibiotic treatment. After graduating, he worked at the NIH for a year as a post-baccalaureate, investigating S. aureus pathogenesis through molecular biology and mouse models. Now, his research focuses on the molecular interactions among the late-stage division proteins in the E. coli divisome. In his free time, Josh enjoys collecting insects and rock climbing.
