Gabe is currently a PhD Candidate at the University of South Carolina's Arnold School of Public Health. He received a B.S. in Biology from the University of Nebraska at Omaha where he focused on molecular genetics. After a few years of working in human genetic diagnostics he returned to school and earned an M.P.H. from Kansas State in Infectious Diseases & Zoonosis before moving on to the University of South Carolina to pursue further education and to apply his knowledge in Environmental Health.
Growing up in the corn-belt, Gabe has always been influenced by agriculture, which has kept him interested in food safety and security throughout his studies. As a part of his PhD work, he is applying his knowledge and experience in molecular biology to these interests by focusing on soil microbiology & how soil biological health benefits farmers, food production, and food quality.
