Research Interest:

I am interested in a multiprotein machinery called inflammasomes which is key in driving an inflammatory form of cell death, pyroptosis. Using Toxoplasma gondii infection as a model, I am working on the role of inflammasome components, especially inflammatory caspases, in pathogen restriction and inflammation.
