Assistant Professor

Primary fields of research

My research focuses on how inflammation and infectious diseases affect immune-privileged sites, and how the immune cells are regulated once they enter these sites. The ultimate goal is to understand diseases in these organs and help develop new types of treatment. I work with animal models and patient biopsies.

I perform my research in a collaboration with other research groups at the University as well as clinicians at the Hospital. You can find me at the Panum Institute on the 13th floor.
