My main research focus in on the signaling role of calcium (Ca2+) in bacterial pathogenecity. The primary model is Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a gram negative opportunistic human pathogen that is the leading cause of death in cystic fibrosis patients.Other projects include: light regulation of Pseudomonas virulence, silver-containing antimicrobials, and geophysical properties of bacterial biofilms.
