    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research focuses on deciphering novel molecular crosstalk between epithelial and immune cells in human epithelial cancers and skin aging. My current projects highlight the targetable epithelial-immune axis in aggressive metastatic tumors with perineural invasion- cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) and head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSC). To accomplish this, I imply single-cell transcriptomics and spatial RNA detection methods- multiplex and hiplex RNAscope along with our newly developed novel tumor nerve invasion model. Additionally, I study the regulome of human skin aging (chronological and photo-aging) by investigating the multiome data to recognize molecular underpinnings of aging.
