Rhishita Chourashi, Ph.D.

Rhishita.jpgDr. Chourashi joined the Oglesby laboratory in April 2020. Her previous work focused on understanding chitin-dependent regulation of gene expression in Vibrio cholerae, with a specific focus on how this regulation affected expression of the type 6 secretion system (T6SS). She is currently studying how iron and PrrF affects T6SS expression in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
