Research Interests

My research interests involve identification, characterization and validation of biomarkers of malaria severity in sickle cell disease to guide the discovery of new diagnostics, prognostics and drug targets. The impact of this research is immense and will benefit both malaria and sickle cell patients.

I am also involved in research in woman's health and disparities. My research goal is to find a non-invasive method for early diagnosis of endometriosis.
