Brief Description of Research Interest:

My research interests include deciphering innate immune responses in infectious diseases (e.g. viral infections) as well as in inflammation-associated cancer. The long-term goal is to identify nodes of interventions that reverse disease progression while limiting immune-mediated tissue damage in the host. Currently, I am studying the functions of type III interferons during development of infections or during carcinogenesis in the mucosa (such as in the lungs, intestines).
