Brett received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2009. There he worked in the lab of Dr. Neil Forbes developing microfluidic devices to study the interactions between bacteria and in vitro tumor models. He earned his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology in 2016 where he worked with Dr. Dave Tirrell and Dr. Dianne Newman. His thesis focused on the development and application of a method for time- and cell-selective proteomic analysis in bacteria. He used this approach to study protein synthesis by the opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa under dormancy and biofilm growth conditions. Brett joined the Bogyo lab at Stanford in the fall of 2016. His current focus is on the roles of serine hydrolases in the physiology of pathogenic bacteria.
