My research focuses on the development of cellular and gene delivery and gene editing platforms to treat genetic and immune-mediated diseases. 

I am particularly interested in improving the outcome of stem cell transplantation and gene therapy in fetal and neonatal patients with genetic disorders, and in developing therapies for children with immune-mediated diseases.
