Research History

  • Postdoctoral Fellow/Laboratory of David ArtisIn the Artis Lab, I identified previously unrecognized group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) in the skin of both mice and humans, and their critical role in atopic dermatitis. Following up on this project, I found that basophils regulate ILC2 responses in this context as well.2010 - 2014
  • Research Fellow/Laboratory of Stephen I. KatzIn the Katz Lab, I investigated the mechanisms that underlie skin inflammation in the context of graft-versus-host disease (GvHD). Unexpectedly, I identified that keratinocytes could act as accessory cells for the presentation of keratinocyte-derived antigen.2004 - 2006
