I completed my undergraduate education in California where I obtained a B.S. in Biology. In 2020 I joined the Microbiology department at Ohio State and joined the Sabree Lab in 2021. My current projects include (1) the effect of diet on gut species diversity and functional capacity and (2) how different gut microbiome compositions impact innate immune gene expression. These projects use the American cockroach, an efficient model organism, with a combination of wet lab techniques and large data set analysis using R.

Kyle joined the Sabree Lab in 2022 and is a PhD student in the Microbiology program at OSU. He is researching the relationship between host-associated microbiomes and immune system evolution. Specific topics of interest include innate immune gene evolution in arthropods, arthropod microbiome diversity and function, and host factors influencing microbiome assembly

I am an undergraduate at Agnes Scott College (Class of 2024), spending the summer at OSU as a visiting student researcher. I am part of projects that aim to understand the impact of microbiomes on growth and development, using germ-free cockroaches as the model organism. The study involves the introduction of a development-promoting gene through a commensal bacterium to stimulate maturation in these germ-free cockroaches. By closely examining the subsequent changes in growth, we can gain valuable insights into the microbiome’s influence on the development of organisms.
