I have been working on various aspects of Burkholderia pseudomallei and its disease, melioidosis, since 2002 when I was a postdoc in Dr Donald Woods' laboratory in Calgary, Canada. I came to the United States in 2006 to join with the Center for Microbial Genetics and Genomics, Northern Arizona University as a senior postdoc, and then was promoted to be an Assistant Research Professor in Biological Sciences. Since that time, I have built my independent research program, including serving as the PI and co-PI on multiple studies funded by federal agencies including NIH/NIAID-PSWRCE, DHS, DTRA, and BARDA. I have published at least 60 peer-review papers on genomic - proteomic analyses, diagnositcs, drug resistance, animal models, carbohydrate research, immunology, and environmental microbiology of B. pseudomallei. I was recruited by University of Florida under the preeminence professorship program in 2014 to develop the Burkholderia Research Group (BRG) at the Emerging Pathogens Institute.
