Research Interests

My research is focused on applying shotgun metagenomics and metatranscriptomics in identifying the evolutionary divergences and convergences in the metabolism of host-associated bacteria (i.e., pathogens/symbionts) and their free-living relatives. I'm interested in using metabolic reconstructions from 'omics'-based approaches as well as cultivation-based techniques to shed light on bacterial physiology in clinical and non-clinical environments.
