Epithelial biology - Skin microbiome - Infectious diseases
My research program focuses on understanding how microbes interact with humans so that we can identify new strategies to improve health. My research integrates 'skinomics', metagenomics and host-microbial genetics to address how microbes influence skin physiology. I am recipient of K99/R00: Pathway to Independence Award from NIAMS (NIH) and have received fellowships from Prevent Cancer Foundation and Dermatology Foundations to support my postdoctoral research in the laboratory of Dr. Elizabeth Grice at the Department of Dermatology, University of Pennsylvania.
