My name is Victoria Oladosu, originally born and raised in south-western Nigeria. I graduated with a bachelor of science degree from the University of Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria. My undergraduate research focused on identifying antibiotics resistance patterns of Pseudomonas aeruginosa species isolated from waste-water. After graduation I went on to take up a research assistant position at the National Hospital, Abuja Nigeria where I worked on an international project (funded by Bill and Melinda Gates foundation) that focused on investigating the burden of antibiotics resistance in neonates from developing societies such as Nigeria. It was during my time at the National hospital that I realized the impact of antibiotics resistance, which ultimately informed my decision to do a PhD. I am currently a third year doctoral candidate at Binghamton University, State University of New York. My research is focused on identifying the role of FleQ, a transcriptional regulator of flagellar biosynthesis, in the antimicrobial tolerance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilms. When I am not "sciencing" I am volunteering, seeing a movie, listening to music, or baby sitting.
