Member of Yale faculty since 2021
The overarching goal of my laboratory is to develop methods that allow for mass spectrometry (MS) analysis of mucin-domain glycoproteins, a class of densely O-glycosylated extracellular proteins. We will also study mucins in a biological context, since these proteins are integral in numerous diseases including: cancer, cystic fibrosis, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). My expertise in MS instrumentation and data analysis, combined with my experience in chemical biology and glycobiology, gives my laboratory a unique ability to tackle long-standing challenges associated with glycoproteomics. These studies will ultimately allow us to unravel the complex relationship between mucins and human disease.
