Research Topic: Identifying molecular pathways required for optic nerve regeneration in vivo.
Research Topic: I aim to determine how the dynamics of transcriptional bursting are affected by histone post-translational modifications (eg. acetylation, methylation).
Research Topic: I aim to better understand the functional consequences of HDLS mutations and to develop a microglia replacement system for the treatment of neurological disease.
Research Topic: To investigate how diverse lipopolysaccharide (LPS) structures are recognized by macrophages and activate the human non-canonical inflammasome pathway.
Research Topic: To understand and elucidate key interactions between viruses and their host cells as a basis for therapeutic and prophylactic strategies.
Research Topic: I will be using Drosiphila melanogaster to investigate the mechanisms regulating neuronal morphogenesis.
Research Topic: Investigating the metabolism-epigenetics link in pancreatic cancer.
Research Topic: Pediatric cancer genomics and metadata prediction from publicly-available gene expression compendia.
Research Topic: Identification of factors affecting yeast disaggregase and chaperone protein function.
Research Topic: Utilizing methods of replication fork retrieval to understand responses to ATRi-PARPi treatment.
Research Topic: Understanding the microbiome is key to understanding the health of any population, and I am particularly interested in approaching this topic from a metabolic perspective.
Research Topic: My research focuses on understanding complex immune responses to pathogens at the maternal-fetal interface.
Research Topic: Molecular mechanisms of RNA binding for the prion-like domain containing protein TDP-43.
Research Topic: I am investigating the evolutionary ecology of ticks and tick-borne pathogens, specifically exploring the population dynamics of ticks in New York to see how they relate to spread of tick-borne pathogens.
Research Project and Progress: I use desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry imaging (DESI-MSI) as a tool to predict COVID specific genes from pre and post infection serum samples of asymptomatic and symptomatic patients.
