Research Summary

My research focuses on understanding cardiopulmonary diseases rooted in chronic inflammation, with a particular emphasis on lysosomal-driven pathways. I plan to study a specific lysosomal-driven pathway using preclinical chronic lung allograft rejection models to gain insights into inflammatory mechanisms. Furthermore, I aim to assess the therapeutic efficacy of a small molecule compound targeting this pathway, aiming to alleviate inflammation and potentially offer therapeutic benefits.

Career Goals

My career goal is to become a successful physician-scientist in cardiology.  I am committed to delivering exceptional clinical care to ensure the best possible outcomes for my patients.  Additionally, I aim to establish a basic research lab focused on advancing our understanding of cardiopulmonary disease processes and translating these insights into a clinical setting.
