Specifically, his group studies how protein amyloids affect adhesion of the fungi, the host response to colonization by fungi, and whether amyloid-targeted drugs can be developed as antifungals. He is also Brooklyn College Faculty Fellow for Research Development, with a goal to promote development of biomedical and behavioral research at Brooklyn College. His interests also include science education, minority opportunities in science, mentoring and student development. He has authored 90 papers and several patent applications, and was recently elected to the American Academy of Microbiology.
