Current Lab Members
Understanding the role of oxygen on coral reef microbial dynamics
Determining recruitment strategies of urchins onto the ARMS and ARKs structures in the Caribbean
I work on phage therapy projects and previously on the gut microbiome
Investigating the role of oxygen and DOC on coral reef microbial ecology
Cystic Fibrosis Rapid Response Project. I am currently studying Microbial dynamics contained within the Cystic Fibrosis Lung via Metagenome, Metatranscriptome, Metabalome, and Virome analysis. Concurrently, I am assisting with bacteriophage therapy research. This entails isolating, classifying, and purifying bacteriophages in an effort to combat pathogens present in Cystic Fibrosis patient’s lungs.
