I work with Aspergillus fumigatus, an opportunistic human pathogen. My research focuses on understanding variation in fungal spores and what regulates its germination. I am taking a transcriptomics and proteomics approach to identify spore specific markers/targets which can be used as a diagnostic tool to assess the population of dormant spores.
