Research Interests

We aim to discover novel fundamental biology in the areas of Immunometabolism, Cancer Immunology and Aging by using cross-disciplinary approaches to data generation and analysis together with in vitro and in vivo experimental biology.

In our laboratory, classically trained immunologists and molecular biologists work hand-in-hand with computational biologists and computer scientists to leverage the power of high-throughput omics datasets. Collectively, our approach can be characterized as Systems Immunology.
