Research Interests: How bacterial and viral pathogens interface with the host The general goal of my laboratory is to understand how bacterial and viral pathogens interface with the host. We have focused on two mechanistic aspects of this interface: (i) the immunological detection and clearance of the infection, and (ii) host systems utilized by the pathogen to facilitate infection.
