Research specialization/interest: My research interests are direct towards understanding how physiological systems interact during human disease. I am particularly interested in learning how the immune system interacts with the system a during disease and how this interplay influences the development and progression of disease. I am currently working on TB is caused by multiple drug-resistant strains and the need to develop new drug therapies and other control strategies and novel inhibitors of the MTB D-alanine ligase that could serve as novel anti-tuberculosis drugs.
