Summary of Experience

My research focuses on the pathogens that affect the health of wild Pacific salmon populations, particularly myxozoan parasites, which have a complex life cycle. My laboratory uses a variety of approaches, from whole genome sequencing and transcriptome analysis to epidemiological modeling to understand how these parasites interact with natural salmon populations and to determine how we can reduce these effects. I have worked in this area for over 30 years.
