A scientist with intrinsic motivation to innovate and advocate

I'm Derreck Carter-House. I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of California, Riverside. My research uses next-generation technology 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.


Recently I've gotten interested in advocating for science. At UCR I've worked to establish a Science to Policy Program to train students (like myself) on how to communicate their research make a positive impact in the world. It also gives young scientists the chance to branch out of academia and into new and exciting careers. 

About Me

Science Corner

Occasionally I run across something that really grabs my attention. I like to post the things I find in the lab, or happenings in life, as a way of journaling my PhD journey
