George DeForest Barnett Professor of Medicine and Professor of Epidemiology and Population Health
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am an infectious diseases epidemiologist who has done large field studies in both the US and developing countries. We research the long-term consequences of chronic interactions between the human host and the microbial world. My lab has done fundamental work establishing the role of H. pylori in causing disease and understanding its epidemiology. Currently, our research dissects how and when children first encounter microbes and the long term effects of these exposures on health.

I am also interested in studying the relation of cognition, estradiol exposure (endogenous and exogenous), and genetic factors.
