Amy Carlile, features Amy Carlile, Ph.D.


The Department of Biology and Environmental Sciences presents a seminar from Amy Carlile, Ph.D. on how new DNA sequencing technologies are revolutionizing the way we study microbial communities. 


Dr. Carlile came to the Department of Biology and Environmental Science two years ago to teach in the Marine Biology program. She moved here from Honolulu, where she was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Botany Department at the University of Hawaii. She completed her graduate degree at the University of Washington in the Department of Biology. She studies molecular systematics and biogeography of various algal groups, and has recently become interested in examining fine-scale biodiversity patterns.

In addition to teaching in the Marine Biology program at UNH, Dr. Carlile is the faculty advisor for the Marine Biology Living Learning Community and co-advisor for the Green Team, a student club aimed at promoting environmental awareness.
