Smruthi obtained her PhD in Environmental Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in Dec 2019, mainly specializing in environmental microbial genomics, working at the interface of microbial ecology, computational biology and engineering. As a part of her PhD thesis, Smruthi worked on developing integrated wet-lab and computational biology based approaches to model, predict and forecast ecosystem recovery patterns in benthic ecosystems affected by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Smruthi joined the Knight lab in March 2020 and is interested in using multi-omics approaches to provide a holistic view of environmental systems.
