Research

Overall Summary: As an immunologist and infectious disease specialist, I focus the majority of my time in basic investigations of host-pathogen interactions. Since my days as a graduate student at Baylor College of Medicine, I have been interested in immune response to infections. During my post-doctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Hidde Ploegh, I have developed a significant interest in using advanced optics to answer fundamental questions of immune responses to fungal pathogens. To date, I have 16 peer-reviewed publications including 5 first or last-authored primary research publications. In October 2008, I started my laboratory in the Division of Infectious Disease, Department of Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital. I dedicate 85% of my time to basic research with the remainder of my time divided into clinical activities and administrative responsibilities.

Teaching and Education: Education of residents, fellows and post-doctoral research fellows is an integral part of my career. I served as Chief Resident in Medicine in 2000-2001. Since then, I have had regular involvement in DOM activities engaged in education of residents including resident report and participating in educational lectures. I use my time on the clinical service to expose trainees to fundamental principles in science and how they impact clinical medicine today.
