I am interested in how pathogenic bacteria cause disease in humans. My recent research has been in collaboration with Dr. Beth Garvy, looking at gene expression in Pneumycystis murina. The majority of my time is divided between teaching and administrative tasks as the Director of Graduate Studies for MIMG.
