Emily Boak is a Ph. D. candidate working in Dr. Elizabeth Pierson’s lab. Her current research is focused on the Type VI Secretion System as a potential mechanism through which rhizosphere-dwelling bacteria establish community structure and alter soil health, and how this affects the community of microorganisms that actively associate with plants as well as overall plant health and productivity.
