Research Philosophy

My primary focus in training students is to provide an environment in which the students can mature scientifically.  This involves guiding and teaching the students to think critically and to approach science with an open mind.  I received an excellent scientific training education from my mentors and my goal is to transfer the knowledge to the future generation.  Science is fun because it is challenging and ever changing.

We use a multidisciplinary approach of combining classical bacterial genetics, biochemistry, molecular biology, genomics, proteomics, and bacterial physiology to address our scientific questions.  I promise that if you join my laboratory, you will work very hard but become an independent scientist capable of critical thinking.
