A scientist with intrinsic motivation to innovate and advocate

I'm Derreck Carter-House. I am a Ph.D. researcher at the University of California, Riverside. My research combines microbiology, molecular biology, and computational analysis to understand how microbes fight each other with the goal to discover new antimicrobials that can be used in agriculture and medicine. 

Outside of the lab, I enjoy the challenges of new projects and hobbies. You can usually find me doing all kinds of things from raising birds, to leathercrafting, to learning and playing new instruments.


At UCR I've worked to establish a Science to Policy Program to train young scientists to communicate their research make a positive impact in the world, giving them the chance to branch out of academia and into new and exciting careers.
