Dr Kim Hoang

Fellow, Junior Research Fellow

NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biology

Department of Biology

PhD (Emory University), BSc (Colorado)

Kim is a US National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biology in the Department of Biology. She is generally interested in the evolution of beneficial host-microbe interactions. Working with Professor Kayla King, Kim is studying how bacteria can evolve to protect (or not protect) their hosts against pathogen infections.

She received her BSc at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs, and PhD at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Her graduate work focused on the evolution of novel beneficial associations using the model nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and bacterium Bacillus subtilis. At Oxford, Kim continues to work with C. elegans and its natural microbiome to determine how host relatedness affects bacterial evolution and genomics.
