Carly Malavé

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015 with a B.S in Medical Microbiology and Immunology and certificates in Global Health and African Studies. For the last two years I have been working as a microbiology research technician at the USGS National Wildlife Health Center in Madison, WI where I study Yersina pestis infection in prairie dogs, and at a food safety lab where I test food products for several pathogens of public health importance. My research interests include infectious disease ecology, parasitology, pathogenic microbiology, and wildlife conservation using molecular techniques. Outside of the lab you’ll find me enjoying nature fun-time, hanging out with my cat Charlie, reading, drinking outside and attempting to cook delicious vegetarian food.
