Personal profile

Research interests

B-A-M Lab is my lab's nickname based on the lab's commitment to understand how Biofilms affect Apatite substrates and the multiple personalities of complex Microbiomes.   We have developed core competencies in near infrared imaging of biofilms, analyzing biofilms communities through 16S sequencing, examining biofilm gene expression, and developing topical therapies.

We are focused mainly on developing how to augment current topical based strategies to reduce biofilm coverage or mitigate the effects of biofilms exposed to sucrose.  Our lab collaborates on several projects related to caries, biomaterials, and pediatric oral health.
