Lisa completed her PhD at Columbia University, where she investigated how environmental stimuli influence the respiratory and metabolic balance and biofilm formation of the opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Lisa joined the Ralser lab in 2020 to explore how metabolic plasticity advances antimicrobial tolerance in critical bacterial pathogens. Lisa is fascinated by the metabolic diversity in microbes and how microbes communicate through metabolic cooperation.
In collaboration with Craig MacLean's and Rachel Wheatley's groups at Oxford University, Lisa investigates cross-species interactions of bacterial-fungal co-infections and their contribution to antimicrobial resistance (more info).
