    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    I am currently an Assistant Professor in Rheumatology in the Physician Scholar Track with a strong background in Immunology who is immensely interested in human translational research as it applies to systemic lupus erythematous (SLE) and the idiopathic inflammatory myopathy (IIM) group of disorders. My main research focus is the role of inflammation and the study of its’ organization, cellular make-up, and presence of cognate versus non-cognate immune interactions by means of computerized, objective, and high-throughput techniques based on image analysis of multichannel immunofluorescently-labeled images of human tissue, acquired with confocal laser scanning microscopy.
    Having been interested in basic and translational research since college, I have acquired a good foundation of research techniques and have had hands-on training in key aspects of data acquisition and analysis under multiple excellent mentors. Besides the standard medical basic science curriculum, I have participated in independent study, culminating in an AAI Advanced Immunology Course to establish a solid foundation of knowledge in this area. I have also completed the Optical Microscopy and Imaging in the Biomedical Sciences course offered at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole to further my knowledge of optical image acquisition and analysis. In addition, I have completed advanced graduate courses in Immunology and Image Analysis at the University of Chicago.
