Michael BaymPrincipal Investigator
Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics
Affiliate Faculty in Microbiology
Member of the Laboratory of Systems Pharmacology
Associate Member, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard
Michael is a microbiologist and applied mathematician studying bacterial evolution and computational genomics. He was a graduate student with Bonnie Berger in Mathematics at MIT, and a postdoctoral fellow with Roy Kishony in Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School. He has won several awards for research including a Packard Fellowship, a Pew Biomedical Scholarship,
a Sloan Research Fellowship,
as well a Hertz Graduate Fellowship. He holds over four dozen issued US patents. His mentorship has been recognized by Harvard Medical School with the A. Clifford Barger Excellence in Mentoring Award and by the SSQBio graduate program's mentorship award.
Michael is originally from Urbana, Illinois and Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA. He was once the tenth Google Image result for "floating dumpster fire."

Adele CollinGraduate Student (MBI)
Adele has a keen interest in applying computational methods to enhance our understanding of antibiotic resistance. Beyond the confines of the laboratory, she finds joy in embarking on adventurous journeys in the mountains or by the sea.
Siân V. OwenPostdoctoral Fellow
Siân thinks that phages are the most interesting biological entity on the planet, and leads a number of phage-related projects in the lab. When she is not hunting weird phages in wastewater, she is hunting edible mushrooms in mossy New England forests.

Natalia Quinones-OlveraGraduate Student (SSQBio)
Natalia studies mobile genetic elements in bacteria, with a combination of bioinformatics and wet lab methods. She is particularly interested in conflicts between conjugative plasmids and bacteriophages.

Eleanor A. RandGraduate Student (SSQBio)
Ellie is working on a novel assay for environmental phage discovery. She is interested in both the ecological and clinical impacts that phages have on bacterial populations. She once threw out the first pitch for the NC Dinos (NC 다이노스).
Célia SouquePostdoctoral Fellow
Célia is interested in the impact of mobile genetic elements and horizontal gene transfer mechanisms on bacterial evolution. Outside of the lab, she is a boardgames fan and an underwater hockey player.

Amy ZamoraGraduate Student (SSQBio)
Amy is interested in temperate bacteriophages and the roles they play in evolution; particularly with regards to antibiotic resistance evolution and bacteriophage competition. When not in lab, Amy loves to rock climb, run obscenely long distances, and climb mountains! ⛰
Jasmijn BaaijensAssistant Professor of Computer Science, TU Delft
Jasmijn is interested in genome reconstruction from sequencing reads, as well as other biological problems that can be solved through graph theory and mathematical optimization.
