Research Keywords: 

Melioidosis, Burkholderia pseudomallei, anti-bacterial immune response, bacterial virulence, bacterial ecology



My current research interests focus on immune defense mechanisms in melioidosis and on virulence traits and the ecology of Burkholderia pseudomallei. This also includes the development of diagnostic tools for melioidosis and for the detection of B. pseudomallei in the environment in various parts of Asia and Africa.
