  • Emily Yeager ’21
    • Emily is a member of the class of 2021 pursuing a major in Biological Sciences and a minor in Environmental Studies.  She has been working with Professor Biller since the spring of her sophomore year.  In lab, Emily is looking at the role extracellular vesicles play in marine microbial interactions, particularly as they relate to nutrient cycling.  She has also worked on projects assessing vesicle production rates and how those rates change under different environmental factors.  Emily loves the underwater world and is hoping to pursue a graduate degree in marine science.  Outside of lab you can find her scuba diving, hiking, studying, or trying to teach herself how to play guitar.

  • Sanjana Ramchandran ’22
    • Sanjana is a junior majoring in Biological Sciences and minoring in South Asia Studies. Currently, she is working on a project that utilizes qPCR to quantify rates of vesicle-mediated horizontal gene transfer. She has also been exploring various computational tools that aid in data analysis. She joined the team in June 2019 and is always happy to talk to prospective students about research opportunities at Wellesley. Outside of lab, you will most likely find her practicing taekwon-do, playing viola, or spending time with family and friends.
