Personal profile

Research Interests

My research focuses on the immune function of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class Ib molecules in normal and diseased states. My lab is interested in understanding how MHC class Ib-restricted T cells are selected and regulated during development and how they contribute to the control of autoimmunity, anti-tumor immunity and infectious diseases. My lab is also interested in identifying microbial antigens recognized by MHC class Ib-restricted T cells with the goal of developing new T cell-based vaccines for microbial infection.
