Research/Areas of Interest:
<em>Vibrio cholerae</em> interacts with both phages and the gut microbiota. My research focuses on understanding how the acquisition of several antiphage defense systems increases the success of the current cholera pandemic strain. I am also interested in understanding the interactions of <em>V. cholerae</em> with special gut bacterial species that could influence the disease outcomes of human patients.
