Jess Millar


My name is Jess Millar and I am currently a Graduate student at University of Michigan pursuing duals degrees in Bioinformatics and Epidemiology. My academic interests include microbiology, statistical analysis, and epidemiology of infectious diseases.

I moved to Ann Arbor from Portland, OR during in summer 2017 and continue to enjoy living in a friendly, peaceful city. My extracurricular interests include sudoku, collecting old medical texts, website design, and tutoring in math and science.

I have had the privilege of working in several biology labs at Portland State University which have helped diversify my training in different model organisms. These have provided the opportunity to view problems at both the microscopic and population level. My current research involves bioinformatics applications to study the evolution of pathogenic bacteria as they move from environmental to host niches.
