Research/Areas of Interest:

I am studying the relationship between granuloma heterogeneity and host immune response – elicited upon tuberculosis infection – using tissue cyclic immunofluorescence or t-CyCIF. CyCIF is used with a wide array of antibody markers to phenotype all the different cell types associated with the granuloma stages, especially their spatial relationships to one another. With these cell-cell associations assessed, it is then possible to understand physiological and immunological outcomes in the TB granuloma microenvironment.

I am a joint postdoc with the Aldridge lab and the lab of Peter Sorger at Harvard.
