This is a portfolio of the professional and scientific content writing produced by Katherine D. Shives.
Katherine is passionate about increasing public awareness and interest in current science topics relating to infectious disease.
She believes this field to be of universal human interest because every single person alive has dealt with disease and that we all can benefit from continued understanding and awareness about the microbial world that we occupy; especially in our current era of ever-emerging new diseases and increasing rates of antibiotic resistance.
In addition to the microbiology topics on this site, you will find re-posts of Katherine’s work withGradhacker.org, a part of Inside Higher Ed. These articles are geared for a graduate student audience and the specific issues they face during the graduate education process.
