Bradford Taylor is a quantitative biologist interested in how the environment shapes bacterial pathogen pangenomes. As a theorist, he tends to tackle questions using some combination of dynamical and statistical modeling. Previously for his PhD, he worked with Joshua Weitz at Georgia Tech to address how multiple phage infections ecologically impact host populations. Next with Joao Xavier, he investigated how the gut microbiome mediates antibiotic resistant infections in immunocompromised patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Outside of science, he also enjoys playing music, playing soccer, and inane conversations.
