Research Interests

My research involves the functional analysis of novel genes associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) using knockout mouse models. Genes identified through genome wide association studies (GWAS) which are potentially involved in host-microbial interactions in the context of the intestinal microbiota are of particular interest.
