My research interests are based in elucidating the fundamental mechanisms that regulate host-pathogen interactions, specifically how bacteria adjust to changes in the host environment. My current research focuses on identifying morphological changes of the human pathogen Vibrio cholerae as it progresses through its infection cycle in a natural host. To do this, we will employ state-of-the-art electron microscopy techniques to visualize the ultrastructure of the V. cholerae bacterium in Zebrafish larvae using novel biorthogonal tags.

After receiving my bachelor’s degree in microbiology and cell sciences from the University of Florida, I continued my education at The Ohio State University where I earned a master’s degree in education and completed three years of biomedical science graduate coursework and research. Most recently at the University of California, Berkeley, I had multiple roles including researcher, lecturer, and manager for undergraduate affairs. During my career, my research experiences have ranged from genetic and cellular studies of animal models of disease to employing genome editing to generate cell lines that facilitate the study of actin nucleation and how intracellular pathogens hijack this process.
