Research Focus:

Our laboratory is broadly interested in insect-microbe interactions that span the areas of symbiosis, pathogenesis, metabolism, nutrition and behavior. A major theme is to integrate omics, molecular and ecological approaches to better understand how the gut microbiome modulates insect physiological responses to changing environment and the virulence mechanisms of gut pathogens. We use Drosophila as our primary research model with the goal of translating into agriculturally- and medically-important insects for novel management strategies.
