Research Vision: Leveraging behavioral markers to quantify and improve individuals’ Quality of Life in new ways – drawing on new emerging models from computer science incorporating examination, diagnosis and treatment of daily life as an “organ” – much like a cardiologist examines heart - and the resulting Quality of Life as a "vital sign" - routinely reported for patients and non-patients alike.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on understanding the human immune response to infectious diseases and vaccination. As part of Dr. Mark Davis' group, I have developed a high-throughput vaccine testing platform that enables rapid testing of new vaccine and adjuvant formulations from primary human tissues. A high throughput screening process that makes use of healthy human cells rather than animal models allows us to identify the most promising vaccine candidates rather than relying on animal models, which historically have been poor predictors of vaccine efficacy in humans. This model enables dissection of the cellular contributors to the adaptive response.
I also have an interest in systems immunology approaches to study human pediatric immune development in general, as this vulnerable population represents an important group for immunization against infectious diseases.
