Research Focus
My research interests are broad in a scope, and lie at the animal models of disease, bacteriology, diagnostics, host immunity, and pathogen-vector-host interaction. Specifically I am interested in genetic regulation of the host-pathogen interaction, molecular aspects of virulence, and agonistic relationship among bacteria
