GENERAL STATEMENT ON RESEARCH AREA(S)
A biomedical research scientist interested in characterization of the emergence and dissemination of antimicrobial resistance and virulence genotypes in various bacterial species. Additionally, I am focused on development of simple, rapid and low cost tools for characterizing bacterial pathogens especially in resource limited settings such as Africa. Previously, I studied temporal fluctuations in antibodies against Plasmodium falciparum merozoite antigens in clinically protected individuals
