Research Summary

The gut immune system maintains an intimate dialogue with gut microbiota. My research focus is centered on defining conserved phylogenetic signals revealing how host immunity and exogenous factors of the gut ecosystem shape the microbiome. I am particularly interested in how these events take place within the epithelium-associated mucus; dynamics of colonization. This work may contribute to our understanding of how disruption of this dynamic interaction (e.g., loss of homeostasis) at the mucosal surface of the gut relates to the onset of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) pathologies observed in humans. This work has allowed me to develop expertise in comparative microbiome studies, which also includes studies on how microbiomes shape host physiology. Our research is supported by the NSF, the NIH, and All Children's Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine. Contact me for further info; CV upon request.
