Research Interests

My research interest is in the way in which the immune system regulates the response of the TLR4 pathway, a critical signalling pathway in the immune system’s first line of defence. Defects in the regulation of this pathway have been shown to have clinical importance in the cases of sepsis and bacterial endotoxin. My research combines broad genome-wide analysis with single cell studies to elucidate the important regulators that are involved in this pathway’s controlled yet robust immunological response.
