Research Summary

I am interested in understanding the mechanisms H. pylori uses to adapt and persist within its human host during periods of chronic infection. To do this I take a functional genomics approach, using both next-gen sequence data to compare populations over time and basic genetic tools and techniques to identify specific factors that facilitate adaptation during chronic infection.
