    Collapse Overview
    I am interested in understanding immune mechanisms that contribute to inflammation and wound healing during traumatic brain injury and neurodegeneration. I am investigating the roles and heterogeneity of macrophages and microglia during traumatic brain injury. My goal is to identify therapeutic avenues to shape the immune response to improve outcomes of traumatic brain injury and other neurodegenerative disorders.
