Research Interests: I am interested in the bi-directional connection between the immune system and the brain, and how these neuroimmune pathways mediate the link between environmental, emotional, and psychological factors and brain health. I am studying two sides of this connection – on the one hand, I am exploring the link between emotional factors, chronic inflammatory conditions, and neurodegeneration. On the other hand, I am interested in applying computational methods to understand the mechanisms behind beneficial interventions such as MBSR.
