Bacteria communicate, cooperate and compete, resulting in a wide range of group behaviors such as dispersal, foraging, biofilm formation, chemical warfare and quorum sensing. Our group, based in the Center for Microbial Dynamics and Infection at Georgia Tech, studies microbial interactions and social behaviors, and the implications for virulence, disease and antimicrobial resistance. We have a particular research interest in understanding Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections in the Cystic Fibrosis lung.
