In 2007, I embarked on a novel study of dendritic cell function in patients with asthma. Previously, my research was clinically based and related predominantly to health care utilization and adherence patterns in asthma patients. During fellowship, I studied lymphocytotoxic and antiphospholipid antibodies in SLE and use of variable region genes usage in autoantibodies and IgE. I also evaluated in situ PCR. During residency, I co-authored publications in the field of rheumatology and gastroenterology.
