Research and academic interests: 

The focus of my research is the search (better known as "bioprospecting") for biologically active endophytes (definition: an organism, such as a fungus, that grows within the tissues or cells of another plant). My primary goal is to identify organisms that produce novel compounds that exhibit biological activity, hopefully against human diseases.
