Summary

My research centers on genomics of infectious diseases, focusing on bacterial pathogens such as Chlamydia trachomatis, Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus anthracis. I use comparative approaches to understand evolution of traits such as virulence and antibiotic resistance phenotypes and develop countermeasures and diagnostics. I am becoming increasingly interested in investigating interactions of pathogens with the other microbiota within and outside the host. As a microbial geneticist by training I have a long-standing fascination with the movement of genes between bacteria by lateral gene transfer.
