Main research focuses on the role of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in asthma. Also investigates several aspects of other immunological disorders such as allergy and DOCK8 immunodeficiency.

I joined Williams Lab in 2018 and since then I have been participating in various studies such as immune blood cell profiling (part of the Chang Zuckerberg Initiative), asthma profiling in children, DOCK8 immunodeficiency in human T cells, characterization of immune cell subtypes in allergy in mice and humans and discovery of new lncRNAs that play roles in immune diseases, especially in asthma.
