I am interested in studying microglial behavior with the broader goal of understanding how these brain-resident immune cells impact the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases. I'm looking forward to using CRISPRi/a technologies to form unbiased hypotheses of key regulatory proteins affecting microglial disease responses.
