Research Interest:

Our research program focuses on mechanisms underlying gene environment interaction in pregnancy. We are interested in elucidating how environmental factors influence epigenetic regulation of developmental-relevant genes including imprinted genes, and how exposure modulates maternal-fetal health.

Research Interest:

Intersection of immunology and environmental exposure. Building on my PhD in reproductive immunology, with a particular emphasis on endometriosis, I am now dedicated to understanding how endocrine-disrupting chemicals influence immune cells, such as T cells and macrophages, at the maternal-fetal interface. This work could lead to better understanding and prevention of reproductive disorders and improve maternal and fetal health outcomes
