Research Interests

Some of my research interests include understanding the mechanistic contributions of bromodomains on epigenetic function and regulation. Furthermore, I am interested in gaining a better understanding of the implications of bromodomain-containing proteins on cardiovascular inflammation and their role in NF-kB driven transcription.
