Research interests

The goals of my research are to determine the mechanisms in which specific members of the intestinal microbiota influence gastrointestinal (GI) physiology. I also use high throughput sequencing of bacterial genes to characterize the enteric microbiota in human subjects with GI disease and mouse models of intestinal inflammation. My ultimate goal is to develop enteric microbial-based therapies for the treatment of GI diseases.
