My laboratory investigates host parasite dynamics during helminth infection with a specific interest in macrophage biology. Using models of injury and helminth infection, we are investigating the role of type 2 cytokines in the relationship, both proximal and evolutionary, between immunity to metazoan parasites, inflammation control and tissue repair.
