Research Interests

My research focuses on leveraging metagenomics-based techniques for characterizing human pathogens and microbiomes. I lead research applying microbiome analytics and data science toward improving care for military service members, including combat-injured patients.

I am involved in a range of additional bio-detection efforts, including identification of microbial signatures in metagenomic data, next-generation techniques for detection of antimicrobial resistance and virulence, analysis of microorganisms in the environment and atmosphere, and assessment of microbial content on the International Space Station.
