Research

My research interests include efficaciously investigating variation in microbial communities within the female reproductive system during pregnancy. 

Research Focus

My projects are focused on evaluating the presence of a microbiome within the urinary tract and the placenta through collaboration with the Perinatal Research Branch, and in evaluating responses of vaginal epithelial cells to vaginal symbionts. I am also involved in several animal projects investigating the role of microbiota in modulating behavior and chemical signaling. More generally, my interests include bioinformatics and utilization of tools for the analysis of large datasets, especially within microbiome research. Additionally, I am a certified software carpentry instructor and an intramural volleyball player.
