Background

  • Post-Doctoral Fellowship, Harvard Institute of Proteomics, Harvard Medical School (Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology)
  • Post-Doctoral Fellowship, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School (Infectious Diseases)
  • Ph.D., Ohio State University (Microbiology)

My primary research interests are with host/pathogen interactions and gene regulation of Bacillus anthracis, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella species, particularly as it relates to vaccine, diagnostic and therapeutic development.

Utilizing proteomic techniques to study immune responses during anthrax, cholera and typhoid.

Gene expression analysis of a large family of Bacillus anthracis genes containing transcriptional elements suggesting induced expression in response to specific amino acid limitation.
