    Collapse Overview
    My research interest has developed around the understanding the host-pathogen interactions, more specifically, the mechanisms involved in the establishment of the host immune response against enteric pathogens and how the microbiota affects the host immune response. My research employs microbiology, cell biology, biochemistry and immunology techniques, as well animal models (mouse) to explore and understand the host-pathogen interactions using the Salmonella infection as a model.
