Overview

Education:

  • Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Fish Diseases and Management, Benha University, 2012
  • Master of Science (M.S.), Fisheries Management, , 2008

Research interests:

I conduct research on bacterial pathogens of fish including Edwardsiella ictaluri and Aeromonas hydrophila and I have research in the foodborne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes. I aim to understand the molecular pathogenesis and identify virulence factors. I employ comparative genomics, functional genomics, and molecular microbiology techniques, as well as next-generation sequencing and bioinformatics to evaluate the host-microbe interactions and answer bacterial pathogenesis questions.
