My name is Kishana Taylor and I am a PhD candidate at the University of Georgia, where I am advised by Dr. David Stallknecht and Dr. Daniel Mead through the Biomedical and Health Sciences Institute. I am part of the inaugural class of the Interdisciplinary Biomedical Sciences PhD program with track focusing on disease ecology. I received a B.S. in animal science from the University of Delaware and an M.S. in public health microbiology and emerging infectious. I seek to combine my knowledge from both of these areas in my PhD by taking an interdisciplinary approach to investigating zoonotic disease and arboviruses.
