Research Interests

Gut Microbiome
“I am interested in exploring the gut phage-bacterial networks that mediate weight gain in response to xenobiotics. Work in the lab will also involve exploring the link between the gut phage-bacterial networks and hypertension. Examination of the gut phage-bacterial networks will provide insights into the mechanisms by which phage influence the gut microbiome composition.”
