Title: Assistant Professor
College: Dentistry
Mentoring Philosophy:

Research Interests

  • Virology
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Oral Health
  • Infectious Disease
  • Infectious Disease Surveillance

My mentoring philosophy is collaborative work and communication for the advancement of science. The student will work closely with the research team and I to receive training in basic laboratory techniques and will gain independence while conducting assigned project experiments. My lab is welcoming and friendly and we are always willing to take the opportunity to teach and answer questions. Beyond daily interaction and communication with the research team, weekly group meetings and individual meetings with me will be held to discuss projects, outline assays to be performed, trouble-shoot issues that arise and gain feedback on progress. This experience will set the student up for the advancement towards their future goals like graduate school and I am happy to guide and answer questions regarding these goals.
