My main interest is understanding the link between human endogenous retroviruses expression in the context of HIV-1 infection.
I am interested in host pathogen interactions in human retrovirus infections, including HIV-1 and human endogenous retroviruses.
We are interested in the chemical biology of metabolism as a mediator of the host-pathogen interaction. We focus specifically on Mycobacterium tuberculosis and its ability to both asymptomatically infect and cause disease in humans.
The primary focus of my research is to understand the mechanical and metabolic drivers of immunity to enhance immunotherapeutic approaches to infectious diseases and cancer. Integration of immunometabolism and cellular mechanics underpins how cells ...
