- Molecular biology
- Fungal Pathogenesis
My lab wants to understand mechanisms of fungal evolution utilizing a variety of laboratory and computation techniques. Specifically, we are interested in trace metal detection and the evolution of virulence pathways of fungi in relation to mammalian or plant hosts.
