My major research interest is the host-pathogen interaction that governs the outcome of infection - pathogenesis, commensalism, or eradication. The effector mechanisms of immune control by host and the immune evasion strategies by pathogens are the particular interests of my current research. Recently, the degradative and non-degradative roles of autophagy ("self-eating") pathway/proteins in the host immune system have been the focus of my research as the crucial effector mechanisms of anti-pathogenic immune defense.
