Patrick’s group at Ohio State studies gene function, gene regulation, and metabolism in the microbiome, using a combination of dry-lab and wet-lab tools. Patrick got his PhD training at the Lewis-Sigler Institute at Princeton, where he was co-advised by Olga G. Troyanskaya and Joshua D. Rabinowitz, working on metabolic regulation in yeast. For his postdoc, he trained in the lab of Katherine S. Pollard at the Gladstone Institutes @ UCSF, where he developed bioinformatic and statistical tools for microbiome data analysis. Patrick is originally from Burlington, VT.
