My current research interests include development and application of molecular biological tools to study the transmission and survival of zoonotic pathogens in the environment, to improve the understanding of the risks of human illness arising from the interface between humans, animals, and the environment. Other research interests include comparative genomics of Cryptosporidium as well as elucidating host/pathogen interactions with this protozoan for identification of pathotypes important in human illness.
Keywords: Zoonotic pathogens, genotyping, quantification, pathogenicity, Cryptosporidium.
