Andrea received a BS in Biology from UW-Stevens Point, an MS in Microbiology from UW-Madison, and is currently working towards an MPH through the University of Florida. While completing her degree in Microbiology, she focused on infectious diseases and her thesis project explored the mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance in opportunistic pathogens. Additionally, Andrea previously worked for the UW in the Allergy, Pulmonary, and Critical care medicine division, where she helped conduct clinical immunology research to better understand the physiology and implications of living with chronic asthma.

Andrea became a member of the Bolling Lab in July 2020 and currently helps manage lab operations and contributes to various projects in the lab, including multiple human intervention studies. Her primary focus is to investigate the connection between food compounds and oral, gastrointestinal, and immune health with an emphasis on promoting healthy foods to improve health outcomes for underserved populations. Andrea also serves as the Green Labs Ambassador to promote more sustainable laboratory practices.

Outside of the lab, Andrea keeps busy with school, spending time with friends and family, and staying active. She loves to travel and is an outdoor enthusiast. If you look carefully, you may even spot her climbing up a rock face at some point.
