The next SEBA Networking Lunch will take place on Monday, May 3rd, with Dr. Katherine Wozniak, a Postdoctoral Researcher at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Dr. Wozniak is engineering microbial hosts to produce useful bioproducts. The lunch will take place from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm via Zoom.

Please let SEBA know by 10 am May 3rd if you would like to attend by emailing networking@uwseba.org with your full name, updated resume, and two to three sentences detailing why this networking lunch would be interesting and valuable to you.


Dr. Katherine Wozniak earned her B.S. in Biochemistry with minors in Mathematics and African Studies from Duquesne University in 2014. During her summers as undergrad, she conducted research at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, GA. In 2019, Dr. Wozniak earned her Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology with a minor in Teaching. She studied reproduction in aquatic organisms under the guidance of Dr. Anne Carlson; specifically, Katie focused on investigating the electrical events that occur at the moment of fertilization. Immediately following graduate school, Dr. Wozniak did a brief Teaching Postdoc at the University of Pittsburgh, where she developed and implemented curriculum for two introductory biology labs that focused on conducting novel research. After, she took a year off to build a camper and travel across the Southwestern United States. Katie is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico working within the Agile Biofoundry to synthetically engineers microbial hosts to produce industrially relevant bioproducts.

SEBA Networking Lunches: 

SEBA holds lunch and/or happy hour sessions twice a month. Though these lunches are typically held off-campus, in light of COVID-19 they will be held virtually, via Zoom. These events are open to science and engineering undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows. Participants gain exposure to new industries, get information on specific career paths, make valuable connections, and practice networking in a casual setting. Events are limited to a small group (around 5-7 participants). Active SEBA members are given event priority. http://www.uwseba.com
