Personal History:

Research Interests:

My research is focused in two primary areas - composite tissue transplantation and infectious disease research.

As a member of the Comparative Medicine Program and a Laboratory Animal Veterinarian, I am very interested in health problems that affect humans and animals. An excellent area to combine these interests is in the area of infectious disease, since many diseases affect both people and animals. My collaboration in this area (specifically the pathogenesis and modulation of Shigellosis, an enteric pathogen of multiple species, including humans) has been very stimulating and interesting. In addition to this work, our investigation of transplantation of composite tissue and the modulation of the immune response to this tissue has been both challenging and exciting. I look forward to continuing these areas of study and taking advantage of whatever opportunities present themselves in the future.
