Research Statement

I am interested in host-epibiont interactions in the marine environment, particularly the role that zooplankton play in shaping the community composition and activity of their bacterial flora. I use a combination of molecular tools, laboratory manipulations, and field observations to identify the pathways involved in the copepod response to a range of Vibrio associations.

My passion for promoting the effective communication of science is driven by the belief that a great scientist not only conducts significant research, but also successfully conveys the applicability of their findings to the scientific community and the public.
