Research Interests

Studying the relationships between the microbiome, health, and lifestyle provides incredible opportunities for translational medical discoveries and public health impacts. I'm excited by the possibility of using various physiological data to predict disease states, both on the individualized and broader community levels. In particular, I want to leverage the increasing availability of non-invasive, stool-derived 16S data to better understand gut microbial community shifts in disease, with the goal of informing microbiome-based therapeutic and diagnostic research efforts. Additionally, I am interested in looking at biomarkers in sewage to predict and track disease outbreaks and extract information about a city's overall health.
