Research areas

My research interests are diverse and inter-disciplinary, but I am mostly interested in studying the immunomodulatory and anti-cancer properties of various natural products, spices, herbs and other food additives. I am also interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms that link macrophage-driven inflammation to conditions such as heart disease (atherosclerosis), obesity, and cancer. So, my research interests revolve around cardiovascular disease (atherosclerosis), macrophage cholesterol
