My research interests focus on the age-associated dysregulation between the immune system and the central nervous system. I am particularly interested in the impaired signaling between microglia and astrocytes in the aged brain. Additionally, I am studying the profile of repopulating microglia in the murine brain after CSF1R antagonist-mediated depletion in the context of age-associated microglial priming.
