The main goal of my current research is to understand how ubiquitin signalling molecules/pathways regulate mammalian embryonic development and fine tune the haematopoietic development of immune cells of myeloid lineages during resting and inflammatory conditions. This would provide additional insights into identifying the signalling molecule(s)/pathway(s) to be targeted for developing therapeutics to improve current treatments for inflammatory disorders.
I am an honorary research member of the Institute for Infection, Immunity and Inflammation at the University of Glasgow, being highly specialised in research into immunology with a major focus on the following areas: chemokines, development of macrophages and lymphatic vasculature (mammalian embryos and adults), inflammation, immunity, bio-imaging and bioinformatics analysis of large data sets. Prior to that, I was working and did my PhD (infection and immunity) at the University of Manchester. Currently at the Oxford Ludwig Institute, I am working on how ubiquitin signalling regulates the functions and development of the mammalian immune system.
