Mya Breitbart

UB_Brilliant_10_Scientist_3mI am a Professor at the University of South Florida College of Marine Science.  I earned my Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Biology with Dr. Forest Rohwer at San Diego State University in 2006 and my B.S. in Biological Sciences from Florida Institute of Technology in 2000. In addition to being passionate about microbiological and genomic research, I am a strong proponent of scientific outreach, especially aimed at increasing the number of women in STEM fields. When I’m not in the lab, I’m an avid nature photographer and can often be found at the dog park with my “borderline-collie” Tyler.
