Bacteriology, Immunology


Hello, I am Hamilton Green a 5th year PhD candidate currently attending Vanderbilt University. My academic interest are heavily in the field of microbiology more specifically bacteriology. I love to investigate the different phenotypic characteristics bacteria possess in order to establish infection. The world of bacteria is extremely fascinating and play important role in our everyday lives. My current interests include working out, meditating and reading books in my spare time.

Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Examining the bacterial profile of various households

As of recent bacterial microbiomes have been a huge and interesting topic in the field of bacteriology as they play an important role in human health. I am course to understand how skin microbiome can differ from individuals of different households. This project will require making different bacterial media that can be made at home selecting for various microorganisms.

Evaluating the effectiveness of homemade bacterial multi surface disinfecting agents

Disinfecting agents are beneficial in keeping a clean and sterile environment. However many industrial disinfecting agents contain harmful chemicals that are harmful via continuous exposure. I am interested in investigating the lethality of home remedy bacterial disinfecting against bacterial pathogens. We will compare these remedies to commonly sold industrial reagents.

Teaching experience

I have experienced tutoring biology and microbiology at Dillard University my undergraduate institution for three years. Furthermore, I have been in several mentor and mentee programs in graduate school having a view point from both prospectives.
