Our research interests in the laboratory focus on the role of human T cells, specifically natural regulatory T cells (Treg, in immunological diseases. We aim to differentiate the mechanisms of action of regulatory T cell suppressive function. We study how pollution, such as diesel exhause, disrupt Treg suppressive function and how chemokines, like lymphotactin, enhance Treg suppressive function. We also study Treg function in tolerance.
Professor of Radiology (Integrative Biomedical Imaging Informatics) and, by courtesy, of Medicine (Medical Informatics) and of Electrical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research seeks to advance the clinical and basic sciences in radiology, while improving our understanding of biology and the manifestations of disease, by pioneering methods in the information sciences that integrate imaging, clinical and molecular data. A current focus is on content-based radiological image retrieval and integration of imaging features with clinical and molecular data for diagnostic, prognostic, and therapy planning decision support.

Sr Res Engineer
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe goal of my research is to enable computers and robots to perceive the visual world by developing novel computer vision algorithms for automatic analysis of images and videos. We tackle fundamental open problems in computer vision research related to the visual recognition and understanding of human actions and activities, objects, scenes, and events. We also develop systems that solve practical world problems by introducing cutting-edge computer vision technologies into new domains.
