About Jacob Steenwyk

Hi, I'm Jacob and I have eclectic interests spanning the sciences and arts. My scientific work blends the fields of computer science, evolution, and genomics to better understand the evolution of fungi. Some questions I address include what causes some fungi to be pathogenic while others are harmless? My artistic endeavors are primarily purpose driven and aim to raise awareness of endangered animals (see my new SciArt shop here).
More broadly, I aim to make education more accessible, promote diversity, equity and inclusion, and build a bridge between scientists and the public. To this end, I am an instructor of an international workshop on phylogenomics, serve on committees across Vanderbilt University that aim to enhance diversity and inclusion, and organize/participate in science-based community engagement events.
