Margaret has been involved in studying the signaling and trafficking of the B cell receptor. She is currently working on identifying the different populations of immune cells present in biopsies of kidneys from Lupus Nephritis patients. Outside of the lab, she enjoys spending time with family & friends, trying her hand and new recipes, traveling and doing agility with her dog.
Malay has a number of scientific interests, including understanding the mechanism of Immunoglobulin gene reaarngement, how bone marrow extracellular cues coordinate with intracellular signaling during early B lymphopoiesis, and how molecular effectors in shaping B cell mediated humoral immune response. Additionally, Malay is interested in understanding the molecular pathways of CD4 vs CD8 lineage commitment during T lymphopoiesis.

Lily is interested in studying the in situ inflammation of various tissue in inflammatory diseases by immunostaining and imaging, especially interested in immune cell interaction in situ. Outside of the lab, she enjoys cooking, yoga and playing piano.
Deepjyoti has a doctoral degree in mathematics with research interests in interdisciplinary sciences. He is currently exploring the organization of immune cells in human tissue including biopsies from patients with lupus nephritis and renal allograft rejection. Using his computational and analytical training, Deep is trying to develop automated platforms to segment complex immune cell populations and perform spatial analyses. He wants to use both data-driven and model-based research for his future research career. He is strongly interested in teaching and enjoys cooking in his free time.
