Personal profile

Personal profile

I have a background in immunology, and experience in studying the innate and adaptive immune response to bacterial infections and allergens. I have also gained experience in investigating the role of inflammation, immune regulation, and immunometabolism in metabolic disorders. My current research interests fall under three main themes, these include inflammation and immune regulation, immune modulation/intervention, and the interplay between the gut microbiome and the immune system.  

Research Interests

Nutritional immunomodulation; gut microbiome-host interactions; inflammation and immune regulation; autoimmunity; immunometabolism; Neuroinflammation.
