Research Interests

• Influence of environmental exposures on the modulation of immune responses and the development of allergic diseases in prospective birth cohort studies
• Regulation of immune cell activity by environmental contaminants with focus on mucosal-associated invariant T cells (MAIT cells)
• Impact of disturbed T cell function (e.g. regulatory T cells, MAIT cells) on the development of health outcomes
