My research interests focus on innate immunoregulation, immunotoxicology and immunogenetics. This includes identifying genetic markers associated with inflammatory diseases, assessing the effects of maternal inflammatory stress on the developing fetal neuroendocrine-immune system, assessing efficacy of immunoceuticals, and characterising the immunotoxicity of microbial toxins. I believe that diversity and inclusion in the classroom and laboratory foster creativity and global understanding. Thus, I am committed to providing an engaging learning environment that promotes these ideals, where all students are provided equal opportunity regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, socioeconomic status, or country of origin.
