About Vernita D Gordon
B.S. in Physics and Math, Vanderbilt University, 1997 Ph.D. in Physics, Harvard University, 2003 I've been part of the faculty in the Physics Department at the University of Texas at Austin since 2010. I enjoy thinking about how the structure and mechanics of multicellular bacterial systems impinge on their biology, and how this perspective could lead to new approaches to treating disease.
