Research interests

My lab has two main strands of interest, both of which are related to an interest in understanding the metabolic function of bacteria.


1/ Bacterial pathogenesis. We are interested in how metabolic properties of pathogens influence their lifestyles. Current areas within this theme relate to denitrifiation in pathogenic Neisseria, hydrogen metabolism, and exchange of small volatile fatty acids and other diffusional metabolites.


2/ Bacterial degradation of pesticides. We are interested in how bacteria influence the biochemistry of pesticide degradation in soils. We are working on projects related tot he microbial community structure and underlying biochemical basis for degradation of pesticides.
