Current Research Interests

Innate immunity, Host-directed therapy, Microbial pathogenesis

I graduated from the Ohio State University with a PharmD, where I then went on to earn a PhD in the lab of Larry Schlesinger investigating the impact of human zinc metabolism on macrophage inflammation and host-resistance to Mycobacterium tuberculosis. In the Tobin lab my work focuses on investigation of tuberculosis pathogenesis. I use a number of unique model systems to evaluate host genetic factors that govern the immune response within mycobacterial granulomas in an effort to discover novel immunomodulatory mechanisms for host-directed therapy.
