I am a veterinarian with a background in public health and epidemiology. My goal is to advance our understanding of the ways in which ecosystems, agricultural practices, and preventive medical systems influence occurrence of disease in human and animal populations. I bring this focus to specifically address Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), a major global health problem associated with extensive morbidity and mortality. My research involves developing laboratory, computational, and statistical tools to characterize risks of antimicrobial resistance genes in bacteria at the human-animal interface. My work relies on implementation of high-throughput sequencing technology and microbiome investigations. Current research projects are being conducted in the U.S., Europe, and Africa.
