Research Description

I’m interested in how the many bacteria, fungi, and viruses that live on us but don’t themselves cause symptoms can alter our immune system to make us susceptible to other infections. Much of my work is looking at how the microbiome impacts the risk of acquiring HIV and how antiretrovirals impact commensal bacteria and viruses. I work with Dr. Jaspan and her global network of collaborators to answer these questions.
