I am a postdoc at Cornell University, where I study the assembly and transmission of host-associated microbial communities. I am interested in understanding where your microbiota comes from in early life, how microbes are transmitted between hosts, and the ecological and evolutionary forces that shape these microbial communities as they develop into a stable and resilient ecological system.
