Summary

My research focuses on comparative genomics of parasitic protozoa, in particular species of malaria parasite and other Apicomplexa such as Cryptosporidium and Theileria, as well as the sexually-transmitted pathogen Trichomonas vaginalis. My group uses a combination of bioinformatics, genomics and population genetics techniques, both in silico and at the bench, to characterize and understand the evolutionary forces that shape whole genomes. The goal of my research is to provide a greater understanding of the biology of these fascinating parasites, with an eye towards developing better diagnostics, drugs and vaccines for their control.
