Dr. Huyen Bui joined Dr. Robin Gerlach's lab as a research scientist. Huyen was born and raised in Vietnam. She came to the US in 2006 to pursue a PhD in molecular biology at the University of Utah. Huyen’s previous research experience includes postdoc trainings at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and University of Utah, where she used genetics and genomics approaches to understand plant development and plant–herbivore interactions. In her current role, Huyen is exploring the microbial community associated with algal culture and develop a molecular toolkit to improve algal fermentation for biofuel production. When not working in the lab, Huyen enjoys gardening, baking, and hiking.
