Andrea has been on a long and winding journey to her current position. She joined as a member of the Bolling Lab team in the summer of 2020, shortly after graduating with a Master of Science degree in Bacteriology from the UW. Andrea arrived with years of research experience in several disciplines, including Microbiology, Genetics, and Immunology. During these experiences, she focused on projects that promoted human health in various ways. Therefore, Andrea initially joined the team as a bench scientist to conduct multiple projects investigating the connection between food compounds and health.

While working in the lab, passionate about sustainability efforts, she led the lab toward achieving a Green Lab Certification. Simultaneously, Andrea also worked on and completed a Master of Public Health degree in the Social and Behavioral Sciences concentration through the UF. These values and experiences prompted Andrea’s role to evolve in the lab as she shifted toward community-engaged research.

Bridging the gap between bench research and the social sciences, Andrea specializes in sustainable health equity initiatives. With a One Health perspective, she is dedicated to addressing food and nutrition insecurity and advancing equity in communities, especially among populations historically underrepresented in research.

Andrea values a work-life balance and enjoys spending time with family and friends. With an adventurous spirit, she stays active, loves to travel and experience other cultures, and is an outdoor enthusiast. You may even spot her climbing up a rock face if you look carefully.
