Jessica Kelliher

Position title: Co-President


I am a second-year postdoc in the Department of Medical Microbiology & Immunology using Listeria as a model to investigate host-pathogen interactions in the cytosol. I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and completed my undergraduate and graduate work at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I served as the Treasurer of the UWPA this past year, was a co-chair of the 2019 UW-Madison Postdoctoral Research Symposium Committee, and very much look forward to continuing serving our Badger postdoc community in the coming year! In my free time, I can be found running, fluting, or sampling local craft brews.
