I am interested in understanding how the autophagy lysosomal pathway modulates aging in the context of lipid metabolism in hopes to develop novel therapeutic targets and treatments for age-related pathologies.

My primary research goal is to better understand how the enzyme Sirt6 acts to regulate lifespan. I am also working to identify genes which regulate transposable element mobilization (harmful rearrangements of DNA) during the aging process
