Research/Areas of Interest:

Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) is a human enteric pathogen that cause intestinal illness, but in susceptible individuals it results in serious complications including hemorrhagic colitis and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). EHEC colonizes the colonic epithelial cells and produces Shiga toxin, which causes systemic disease. My research focuses on understanding how Shiga toxin translocates across the intestinal barrier into the blood and to the other target tissues.
