My background in both pathogen genomics and microbial ecology allows for different and unique perspectives on how to address research questions. I have extensive experience in metagenomics and the use of complex phylogenetic models.
My current interest is understanding patterns of diarrheal diesease using high-throughput, high-resolution genomics.
