Work and Research

My research interests are focused on TB immunology, leading key initiatives at AHRI, and contributing to national TB policies to enhance high quality TB research. Since 2003, the focus of my research has been to understand the patterns of host immune response during different stages of TB infection and disease, as well as the interaction of hormones with host immunity during TB infection. With the goal of identifying biomarkers with possible applications to improved TB diagnostics and vaccines, I have experience conducting collaborative clinical and translational research studies in the areas of TB and other infectious diseases.
