Event Description
Jade Mitchell, PhD, '07, '10
Assistant Professor, Biosystems Engineering
Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI

"Risking Resistance"

Jade Mitchell is an Assistant Professor in the Biosystems Engineering Department at Michigan State University. Her research focuses on the application of risk-based decision frameworks to emerging environmental and human health issues. She is keenly interested in problems that exist at interfaces between chemical and microbial stressors like antibiotic resistance. Because of uncertainties across complex exposure pathways, risk modeling for antibiotic resistance is inhibited. Jade will discuss her current research projects that utilize mechanistic and decision analytic models to support an understanding of resistance genes as environmental hazards. She will discuss balancing risk trade-offs and the research questions she focused on for targeted risk management decisions and the identification of critical control points. At the same time, she will discuss how her research program has developed beginning with her graduate studies at Drexel in the Center for Advancing Microbial Risk Assessment.

Jade has taught courses in engineering design, engineering economics, optimization, and microbial risk assessment and modeling. She recently won a college teaching excellence award in 2017. Her work has been presented and published nationally and internationally. Jade has a BS in Civil and Environmental Engineering (‘97) from the University of Pittsburgh, a MS in Civil Engineering (‘07), and a PhD in Environmental Engineering (‘10) from Drexel University.
