We strive to be a lab where kindness and collegiality are valued. Discrimination of any kind is not welcome, and we are especially eager to amplify historically underrepresented voices in STEM and BYU.
Bacterial infections are a major public health challenge. We study the molecular pathogenesis and evolution of bacteria. We are especially interested in those bacterial pathogens that cause disease in both humans and animals, and want to understand how they adapt to different hosts.
