Accepting new graduate students


Ph.D., Biochemistry, Microbiology, and Molecular Biology, Pennsylvania State University, 2017
B.S., Chemistry, Wake Forest University, 2011

Dr. Rajakovich will launch her research program at the University of Washington in January 2022. Her independent program will focus on the discovery and characterization of novel microbial metabolic functions and enzymes that impact human health and the environment. Her group will integrate approaches in bio(in)organic chemistry, chemical biology, enzymology, microbiology, and bioinformatics to study chemistry in host-associated microbiomes such as the human body. Her research will illuminate the influence of microbes on the natural world and will enable the use or manipulation of microbes and their enzymes for biocatalysis, synthetic and environmental biology, and therapeutics.
