I am pursuing a doctorate degree in South Dakota State University. My research is focused on the use of Bifidobacterial strains to inhibit Enterococcus faecalis-Rotavirus coinfection. I am also developing a genistein-metabolizing pig library. I have studied the impact of some selected sweeteners on the human gut microbiome using an in vitro minibioreactor model. I have also previously worked on phage isolation from the fecal samples of pre-term infants.
