I am interested in the immune response to allergens in the context of vaccines. I am currently using a system biology approach to determine the mechanisms underlying immune stress-related responses (ISRR) to COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. Using a similar approach in addition to high dimensional flow-cytometry, I am also attempting to elucidate how early peanut introduction alleviates the development of peanut allergy. In addition, I am working with patients with Myhre Syndrome to determine if gain-of-function mutations in SMAD4 affect the duration of vaccine responses.
