Research Interests & Projects

Research Interests & Projects
I am broadly interested in chronic disease and inflammation, as well as measuring, predicting, and understanding chronic disease progression through the use of biomarkers. I have been working with Dr. Daniel McConnell at the CLASS lab since April of 2016, where we conduct assays for a variety of projects such as SWAN, PROTECT, and ELEMENT. I have recently become an investigator-in-training on the new SWAN grant and will be continuing my work with Drs. Siobán Harlow and Carrie Karvonen-Gutierrez.

Current Research
Studying the association between past metabolic syndrome status and inflammation on the development of non-diabetic peripheral polyneuropathy. I will also be conducting assays for the upcoming grant cycle of SWAN.
