Research Interests:  My lab is broadly interested in viruses and how they behave. In particular, we are currently building a library of bacteriophages that infect the bacteria Microbacterium foliorum and Gordonia rubripertincta with the goal of understanding which virus genes contribute to virulence and host preference. I am also interested in understanding how environmental contaminants affect the ability of mosquitoes to transmit viral pathogens.
