Research Summary

My lab studies quorum sensing, a cell-cell communication system of bacteria. We are primarily interested in Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an opportunistic human pathogen. We study the adaptation and evolution of quorum sensing as it pertains to social behaviors, such as cooperation. We are also interested in remodeling of quorum sensing networks in chronic infections.
