Dr. Rachel Morris grew up in a small town on the beautiful coast of Maine. She earned an A.S. in Medical Laboratory Science and a B.A. in Biology from the University of Maine at Augusta. She moved to Milwaukee, WI in 2007 and received her Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Marquette University in 2011. She did her postdoctoral work at Michigan State University and the University of Michigan Medical School where she studied the physiology and ecology of bacteria in low oxygen environments, including the human gut. She has been passionate about education throughout her career, teaching and mentoring high school, undergraduate, and graduate students. She is very excited to work in the classroom as a member of the MSU BLD faculty! Dr. Morris lives in Mason with her husband, two sons, and an awesome cattle dog mix named Zora. In her spare time, she enjoys knitting, reading, and anything that takes her outdoors.
