Research

Investigations in my laboratory are focused on defining the molecular cues that guide leukocyte migration in secondary lymphoid organs and the mechanisms that promote lymphocyte egress from primary and secondary lymphoid organs. A parallel line of work examines self-tolerance mechanisms promoting autoreactive B cell elimination within lymphoid organs.
