Scholarly Interests

My work centers on understanding how bacteria cause disease in people and animals with the goal of improving animal and human health. My laboratory group studies antimicrobial resistance and stewardship and Salmonella and Staphylococcus pathogenesis. We are particularly interested in how bacteria communicate with each other (quorum sensing) and how they respond to environmental signals found in the host.
