    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsAs a postdoctoral scholar, I am studying the gut ecosystem, gut functionality nad neuroimmune interactions during aging and age-associated diseases like AD, and the role of fermented food in modulating gut health. I expect to be able to show that dietary modifications can help with healthy aging and to contribute to possibly leveraging dietary interventions therapeutically in age-associated diseases.
