Ashley Paulsen

I received my A.S. from South Puget Sound Community College during high school, before transferring to the University of Washington, Seattle, where I obtained my B.S. in Microbiology. I also gained a minor in Chemistry. Some classes I completed include Prokaryotic Recombinant DNA techniques, Bacterial Genetics, Biochemistry, and Organic Chemistry.

During my undergraduate degree, I worked with Arnold Bendich and Delene Oldenburg, first as a lab assistant and then on a year long research project in which I endeavored to find the optimal medium for inducing callus tissue generation in maize embryos. I also wrote a lab protocol for preventing and resolving microbial contamination in culture, which proved to be an ongoing issue.

I now work in the Cademartiri lab, using novel tools to study the behaviour of plants and microbes, both separately and in conjunction with each other.
