I am a research scientist with expertise in several disciplines including endocrinology, molecular biology, and respiratory physiology. My research is primarily focused on the study of lung inflammation associated with air pollution, with particular emphasis in sex differences and the role of sex hormones. My laboratory uses a combination of molecular biology, immunology, and endocrinology approaches to study hormonal regulation of gene expression networks in response to environmental insults. I also lead an interdisciplinary research project focused on the identification of miRNA and proteomic biomarkers for pediatric inflammatory lung disease, including bronchopulmonary dysplasia and pulmonary hypertension.
