Research Description

I completed my PhD in South Korea. After joining the Sun lab, I have focused on the underlying mechanisms by which tissue immune cells cause chronic disease following respiratory viral infection including respiratory syncytial virus, influenza or SARS-CoV-2. I am interested in the regulatory networks between memory T cells and alveolar macrophages, and the downstream consequences on memory T cell maintenance, protective immunity and chronic tissue sequelae.
