I am an Assistant Professor of Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology at the University of California Berkeley School of Public Health with a joint appointment in the Center for Computational Biology. My research uses experimental and computational approaches to study the mammalian gut microbiome and its role in health and disease. I am working with Sarah Stanley to probe the role of the gut microbiome in susceptibility to TB infection.

I am an Assistant Professor in the UCSF Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, under the research mentorship of Dr. Joel Ernst. My research focuses on the heterogeneous response of mononuclear phagocytes infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. I am interested in how recruited monocytes differentiate into mature macrophages in the infected lung, subclasses of these cells, and if tuberculosis is able to uniquely drive differentiation pathways.
