    Collapse Overview
    I am an infectious diseases physician by training with a background in immunology, epidemiology/biostatistics and computation. My research is largely translational with my primary focus being the use of unbiased serological profiling to understand the humoral immune response to flavivirus infections. I believe that this approach, combined with others can aid us in vaccine design. I am also interested in expanding this technique to other infectious diseases.

    My second area of interest is more computation-focused. In collaboration with other investigators at UCSF, I have developed a gene expression signature that we believe can be an effective tool for TB-screening in people with HIV in TB-endemic areas. This work fits into a larger interest in trying to understand how to more effectively leverage data generated from high throughput assays.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
