I am a molecular microbiologist interested in how microorganisms cause oral disease and in how treatments for patients with these diseases ca be improved. My research has a number of theme including adhesion of oral microbes to surfaces, oral colonization, oral biofilms and the drug resistance of oral fungi. I am also interested in oral homeostasis and monitoring oral conditions for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
