Research Interests: Antimicrobial resistance is now considered as a third leading global cause of death after stroke and heart disease. My lab is broadly interested in understanding the molecular mechanism(s) of antimicrobial resistance. In particular, we are interested in understanding the role of environmental factors, such as pH and oxygen in developing bacterial resistance against cationic antimicrobial peptides, such as polymyxins.
