Research Interests

In general, my research interest is to broaden our understanding of bacterial-host interactions to improve intervention strategies and control infectious diseases. I investigated fluoroquinolone resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis prior to working with a corn pathogen, Pantoea stewartii subsp. stewartii during my Ph.D. training. I have applied next-generation sequencing to investigate the transcriptomes, to assemble the whole genome, and to identify new virulence factors in this bacterial pathogen. Currently, as a PERT postdoctoral fellow, I am focusing on Photorhabdus species to isolate novel antimicrobial agents against human pathogens with the concentration on antibiotic resistant bacteria.
