Research

My primary research interests are comparative immunology and environmental parasitology, and my long term research goals are to: (1) Characterize regulation of macrophage hematopoiesis and antimicrobial mechanisms in mammals and fish;  (2) Describe and analyze the mechanisms of innate immunity in prokaryotic and eukaryotic infectious diseases; and (3) Develop and use detection and remediation strategies for xenobiotics and pathogens in environmental samples.
