My research interests are in mucosal immunology of the female reproductive tract, both in health and disease. My current work is focused on three projects. The first is to understand how environmental factors, such as those present in semen, affect endometrial receptivity and fertility. The second project is to use ex vivo models to characterize the molecular basis of intrinsic cellular permissivity of CD4+ T cells to HIV, under environmental conditions mimicking that of the female reproductive tract. The third project is to better understand how endometriosis alters the composition and function of the endometrial immune cell niche.
