Bacteriophages intrigue me. My interests extend from structural and genetic studies to the practical
applications of phage research, such as my current research project. When Iím not at the lab my time is
spent reading, hiking, and playing odd board games.
Research Project Involvement
- Bacteriophage-based bioremediation of foodborne Salmonella, examining whether purified
phage lysis proteins are an effective control of Salmonella in raw and ready to eat poultry products.
- American Society for Microbiology
- Biomedical & Veterinary Sciences Graduate Student Association
