My research focuses on identifying the molecular characteristics of the T cells that promote neuroinflammation in multiple sclerosis. I am particularly interested in how these characteristics can be pharmacologically targeted to prevent T cell trafficking to, and crossing of, the blood-brain barrier during disease.
