I am in the Baatz lab, where I am working on a project investigating the interactions of marine-borne toxins and surfactant lipoproteins in the mammalian lung. The work will focus on the mechanisms by which particular anthropogenic chemicals induce an immune response in lung tissue exposed via inhalation. I am broadly interested in immunology, with the ultimate goal of drawing significant connections between environmental research and human health.
