About Us

Our lab is focused on the study of both macro and micro-processes, and our main projects are:


- The etiology, epigenetics and ecology of infectious and autoimmune diseases, using DNA and proteomics-based epidemiology

- Human and non-human evolutionary history (sensory system, co-evolution host/parasites, evolution of metabolism - with the Davalos lab at SBU Ecology and Evolution)

- Improving biological and data analyses protocols for specimen-based research, including artificial intelligence/machine learning solutions and rendering of both specimens and their larger context for application in both medicine and forensics.

- Improving molecular and histomorphological methods and protocols of forensic investigations of highly decomposed and skeletal material (with Dr. Nick Petraco and Dr. Peter Diaczuk, John Jay College of Criminal Justice)

- The investigation of new methods of point-of-care (PoC) diagnostic and vaccine delivery for use in resource limited countries (with Doctors without Borders)
