RESEARCH INTERESTS

M y current research interest lies in the investigation of virulence gene regulation in bacterial pathogens during infection of the gastrointestinal tract. In particular I am interested in the role played by DNA supercoiling as a global regulator of virulence gene transcription in response to a variety of environmental signals which are encountered during the infectious cycle.
