Research Interests
My research interests include the role of T cells in the development of lung disease. I am also interested in the alterations in lung microbiome that characterize the lung in different stages of HIV disease and whether a broadened microbiome could contribute to the early onset of lung disease in HIV-infected patients.
Information for Referring Providers
Clinical Interests for Referring Providers: I am interested in treating interstitial lung disease, granulomatous lung disease, and HIV disease.

Research Interest for Referring Providers: My interests mainly center on the role of T cells in the development of lung disease. In particular, the laboratory is interested in determining the mechanism by which CD4 T cells recognize the beryllium antigen in the context of HLA-DP2. We have recently determined the structure of HLA-DP2 and this structure defines a potential beryllium binding site. The immunologic mechanisms involved in the progression from beryllium sensitization and disease as well as the development of biomarkers that could potentially detect this progression in the absence of invasive procedures is also a major interest. We are also interested in the alterations in the lung microbiome that characterize the lung in different stages of HIV disease and whether a broadened microbiome could contribute to the early onset of lung disease in HIV-infected patients.
