Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Faculty of Medicine
Originally from Washington state, Karlie received her bachelor's degree in biochemistry from Willamette University. She then moved to California where she worked as a research assistant in the Wang lab at Stanford University.
Her work with infectious diseases peaked her interest in understanding what drives immune system function. Now as a member of the Kobor lab she is interested in learned about how early life exposures, such as malnutrition, alter the epigenome and ultimately impact immune system function.
When not in the lab, you can find Karlie either out enjoying nature (hiking, running, and and skiing) or in the kitchen baking and cooking yummy treats!
