Our research effort has two overarching themes:

  1. Improving access to quality healthcare among vulnerable communities (refugees, internally displaced, historically oppressed and marginalized communities) both locally and globally, using a suite of multi-disciplinary approaches rooted in engineering, basic and computational sciences, social sciences and evidence based public health. We are interested in not just discovery but also devote our time and effort on working with local policy makers and on-the-ground communities to develop ethical, context-appropriate solutions.
  2. Understanding fundamental processes that regulate cellular form and function that drive diseases such as cancer.
