Research Interests

I am interested in microbial symbiosis and understanding the chemical interactions and the underlying co-evolution that occurs between a host (in particular insects) and their microbial partners. I received my BS and MS in Microbiology from the University of Arizona under the tutelage of Patricia Stock studying the tripartite symbiosis between insects, insect pathogenic nematodes and their mutualistic bacterial partners.
