Research Focus:
In collaboration with the Troutman lab, my work seeks to characterize the complexity of bacterial polysaccharide synthesis.  Using interdisciplinary approaches, we hope to develop new methods to detect and target bacteria based on their presentation of unique surface sugars.  Additionally, these same tools can inform our understanding of bacterial homeostasis and virulence, and provide novel tools to monitor and manipulate bacterial polysaccharides.
