Prospective students are encouraged to reach out to past trainees/mentees for advice.

Graduate students

Anita Nikolsky
Anita will be joining our lab in the Fall 2021. She is interested in understanding how different vaccine dosage regimens fundamentally alters the evolutionary process behind the adaptive immune response and will be applying our lineage tracking strategies to B-cells.

Claire Chochinov
Claire will be joining our lab in the Fall 2021. She is interested in developing molecular techniques to expand deep-mutational scanning in human genes.

Arnaud N’Guessan
Arnaud will be joining our lab in the Fall 2021. He is interested in studying microbial ecology and evolution. His main projects revolve around the use of single-cell RNA sequencing in microbes.

Mentees/Collaborators

During my postdoctoral research in Michael Desai’s lab, I was directly involved in the mentorship of several graduate students and remain close to them. I consider these scientists more as collaborators and still work with them as they advance in their careers.
