I am interested in host-epibiont interactions in the marine environment, particularly the role that zooplankton play in shaping the community composition and activity of their bacterial flora. I use a combination of molecular tools, laboratory manipulations, and field observations to identify the pathways involved in the copepod response to a range of Vibrio associations.
