About Me

Shannon M. Collins graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a Bachelor’s of Science in Chemical and Biological Engineering (2016). While at RPI, Shannon completed research that was interested in Metabolic Engineering, and the ability to produce novelty chemicals from bacteria. Now, at Lehigh University, Shannon works in Angela Brown’s lab working on Antibiotic Resistance Research. Specifically, Shannon looks at the effects of antibiotic resistance seen in planktonic and biofilm growth, and delivery of biological components to planktonic or biofilm cultures.

Outside of the laboratory, Shannon likes to hike, run, surf, bake, and travel (when there is time). In addition, Shannon is currently the president of ChEGA (Chemical Engineering Graduate Association at Lehigh University).
