My background is in infection biology. I am interested in the protein-coding genes involved in nematode parasitism, how these genes are regulated by small RNAs, and the role of small RNAs secreted by nematode parasites into their host. I am also interested in nematode small RNA pathways, more generally, including the genes that these pathways target and the conservation and diversification of these pathways across nematode taxa.
