My desire to learn about how microorganisms communicate goes back to my undergraduate research days. I have always been fascinated at how bacteria can sense and react to their environment. In our lab, we want to understand how specific cell-cell communication systems are used to benefit host-microbe interactions in our gastrointestinal tract.
