Welcome! My name is Danielle Stevens, and I recently earned my Ph.D. in Integrative Genetics & Genomics at UC Davis in Dr. Gitta Coaker's Lab. I also focus on gram-positive bacterial pathogens and immunity across the plant kingdom to understand the evolution and mechanisms of perception and evasion. My long term goal is use this knowledge to develop sustainable biotechnology approaches to engineer crops for disease resistance.
