Scientific Interest and Avenues for Collaboration My goal is to ensure the success of the researchers using MICR by providing expertise in flow cytometry techniques, individualized assay design consultation, and data analysis support. I also strive to push my users out of their comfort zones, expand their use and understanding of flow cytometry, and make their data more functional and reproducible. My research interests focus on the tumor microenvironment, particularly on the role the immune system plays in cancer therapies and tumor regression.
