Research Interests

Redox signaling in lymphocytes is vital for proper immune system function, yet this area of research is understudied. My graduate career focused on the role of mitochondrial superoxide in T-lymphocyte development. I have transitioned this expertise into my postdoctoral training where I now examine the role of redox signaling in T-lymphocytes during the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease.
