Host-microbe interactions and their involvement in inflammatory diseases are my long-standing interests. My main project revolves around T cell responses generated against the commensal microbiota in the context of intestinal inflammation, with the aim of characterizing their pathogenicity and plasticity, and ultimately identifying new targets for the treatment of IBD. I recently embraced a new line of research aimed at investigating immune and microbial changes induced in the human stomach by H. pilori infection. To study these complex systems, I deploy a combination of classical immunological techniques and single-cell genomics in both murine models and human samples.
