Research
My primary research goals are directed towards understanding how cell-cell communication networks in different cellular microenvironments shape diverse cellular responses and functions. In my current research at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, I am applying single cell technologies and computational approaches to study the cellular diversity within the tumour microenvironment and the maternal-fetal interface and to understand the underlaying mechanisms involved in mediating interactions in those environments.
