I am a molecular biologist who studies the interaction of infectious diseases with human genetics. Our focus is on trying to understand why some individuals get infected with tuberculosis, while others are able to clear the infection.

I started my scientific career as a marine biologist, then moved into human genetic analysis of various diseases. When I joined Lalita Ramakrishnan's lab, it was the perfect combination of fish and human immune system biology.
