Research Interests

I am an Immunologist with training/experience in cell and molecular biology and uses in vitro and in vivo models to investigate mammalian immune regulation. Research is currently focused on the how dietary supplements influence the immune response in mammals. The lab is also interested in how gut microbes influence Health and immunity.
