Hi! My name is Andrea Ameruoso, and I am a Ph.D candidate in the Biochemistry and Cell Biology program.
I was born in Bari, in the south of Italy, where I got my B.S. and M.S. in Biotechnology. After that, I did research at the Italian Institute of Technology in Genova, until I decided to apply to Ph.D programs in the US.
Once at Rice, I joined the Chappell lab and started working on engineering Gram positive bacteria to produce natural products of biomedical interest.
Feel free to reach out to me with any questions you might have!
