Areas of Expertise

  • Pathogenesis of bacterial diseases and emergence of antimicrobial resistance in bacteria.

Education

  1. PhD, Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph, Canada
  2. BVSc, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka

Research Interests

My research interests lie in the areas of pathogenesis of bacterial diseases and emergence of antimicrobial resistance in bacteria. The long-term goal of the research program is to develop effective intervention strategies and improved diagnostic tools. Major projects are directed towards developing vaccines to control infections caused by extra-intestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli, Salmonella and Enterococci in humans and/or food-producing animals.  Our research also focuses on molecular characterization of bacteria and developing diagnostic tools as new diseases emerge, and diagnostic, clinical and epidemiological investigation needs arise.
