One Health Institute Staff
Claire is currently a post-doctoral fellow in a hybrid role with appointments in the CSU One Health Institute and in the Urgent Care/Critical Care Unit at the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital. She spend time in a variety of places: as a clinician on the UC/CCU floor, as an administrator working on One Health + One Medicine, and as a primary researcher in translational trauma.
Katrina is a third-year doctoral student in the Applied Social and Health Psychology program at Colorado State University. As a member of the Graham Behavioral Medicine Lab, her research focuses on the biological, psychological and social processes that impact health. Katrina use experimental and observational methods to identify barriers to healthy behaviors and works to design interventions to reduce/remove/circumvent these impediments. Her goal is to take experimental findings and apply them to real world settings to help people live happier, healthier lives.
Luke is a Masters of Science Candidate and Biomedical researcher at Colorado State University under Dr. Adam Chicco. His laboratory uses several animal models to answer novel questions related to hormone-mediated metabolic responses to hypoxia, as seen in patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Congestive Failure and COPD.
Having held numerous teaching and leadership positions related to science education – from presenting lectures to Family Practice Physicians to teaching organ-system anatomy to 5th-graders – Luke is interested in bridging the gap between laboratory science, clinical practice, and community engagement in health.
I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, but moved to Colorado in 2013 to earn degrees in Neuroscience and Psychology from the University of Colorado Boulder. Currently, I am a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine candidate pursuing my diverse interests in animal health, clinical medicine, environmental advocacy, and public policy. This brought me to the One Health Institute, where I was grateful to spend a pandemic summer collaborating on a continuing education course regarding sustainability initiatives in veterinary practice. Through this role, I am excited to participate in community outreach and education and serve as an advocate for advancing the concepts of One Health and One Medicine. Outside of CSU, my hobbies include hiking with my energetic German Shepherd Dog, downhill skiing, exploring local breweries, and traveling.
