Research Interest:
1. Developmental Biology (primarily interested in understanding how post
transcriptional gene regulation influences development and cellular function using
the model Caenorhabditis elegans)
2. Microbial pathogenesis and screening of candidates for the development of novel
antibiotics using C. elegans.
