- My research interests are primarily on the Molecular Epidemiology of foodborne pathogens particularly Salmonella spp. and other bacteria in the Enterobacteriaceae family. Combining the integrate knowledge of molecular laboratory and the method in epidemiology sciences, these disciplines provide the powerful tools to determine dynamics of disease transmission in geographically widespread areas. Research fields that interest me include the application to epidemiology of molecular strain-typing methods, and the characterization of antimicrobial drug resistant pathogens.
