I have been at Seton Hall University teaching Microbiology, Senior Biology Seminar,
Emerging & Infectious Diseases, Microbial Physiology, and Bioinformatics since 2008.
My teaching philosophy is to integrate research into science education. My current
research interests include: (1) A novel approach using natural products and its
derivatives as potential therapeutic agents for diseases; (2) Study of physiological
response to various stress factors on bacteria; (3) Environmental probes development for
prediction, early detection and prevention of algal blooms; (4) Molecular mechanism of
lytic/lysogenic Cyanophage AS-1 life cycle; (5) Genome projects and bioinformatic
analyses of cyanobacteria and cyanophage.
