About the speaker
Dr Erin McKenney studies how microbial communities form over time and how they adapt to their environments. Over the past decade she has collected fecal samples from over 250 animals housed at 4 different zoos, to investigate the effects of host diet and lineage. More recently, she has expanded her research to sourdough and other fermented foods.
Microbial cultures lie at the heart of human cultures, and fermented foods provide accessible systems for studying microbiology and nutrition without formal laboratory equipment. By combining citizen science and global collaborations, Erin uses research to empower students of all ages.
