Research interests

My primary research interests are in the pathogenesis of disease in aquatic animals.  My work compares pathogen induced immune responses in aquatic animals to those in mammalian species. My research efforts have examined viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections as well as the effect of environmental changes on disease. Additionally, I collaborate on various mammalian pathology research projects.
