My research is centered around the immune system, how it acts upon change and when exposed to different intrinsic and external environmental stimuli. Examples of intrinsic stimuli are life style-dependent mediators and inflammatory conditions. Examples of external environmental stimuli are allergens and other (nano)particles that the body is exposed to on a daily basis.

The gut microbiome is a key factor in the normal development of immune cells and plays a significant part in disease development. In fact, the axis from the gut to other systems, such as the gut-brain axis, have been underrated in significance. In my research, I ask two questions: 

How do near-near and near-far immune environments affect each other? When does a given gut microbiome axis play a significant role?

I am affiliated with the Group of Brain Development and Disease, who are experts in modelling Alzheimer's Disease and the mechanisms behind this debilitating disease.
