Research Interest

I’m broadly interested in host-parasite interactions during Giardia lamblia infection.  I have developed an in vitro co-culture system to assess long-term effects of the parasite on intestinal epithelial cells, including induction of cell apoptosis and disruption of the barrier function.  The experimental design is useful in determining the role immune cells, such as macrophages, play in parasite control and/or clearance.
