Research Interests

The focus of my research has been on: (1) characterizing the functional aspects of EspP in inducing macropinocytosis of Shiga toxin, and (2) determining the mechanisms by which the colon can regenerate post- injury. From my postdoctoral work in the laboratory of Dr. Olga Kovbasnjuk, I have been working to determine the pathophysiologic effects of enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) interaction with human enterocytes.
