Expertise and interests include:

1) Salivary biochemistry. Saliva is a multifunctional and complex body fluid that exerts host-protective effects. I am interested in how specific salivary proteins can protect individuals from oral infectious diseases. Studies are ongoing attempting to quantify protein levels among subjects and correlate them with salivary microbial profiles.

2) Epithelial cell biology. One of the consequences of periodontal disease is an altered gingival epithelium. I am interested in how inflammation alters epithelial cell behavior, in particular the cell-cell and cell-substrate attachment mechanisms.

3) Clinical diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases. I am interested in understanding the risk factors associated with oral conditions as well as evaluating the results of clinical treatments.
