Research Interests

Understanding how exposures in the intestine can influence the broader immune system.

Research Description

My current research focuses on understanding how immune responses in the intestine can influence the broader immune system. I am exploring how alteration of mucosal immunology by commensal bacteria and pathogens can influence the systemic immune response and secondary challenge with pathogens via innate trained immunity. I am also exploring the related concept of how environmental enteropathy, enteric infection and systemic inflammation in infants can alter respiratory outcomes.
