Position Title


The general aim of my research is to use new analytical tools and omics to improve human health and prevent disease. To accomplish this goal, I joined the Barile’s lab in UC Davis to work on milk glycoprotein and oligosaccharides which are bioactive components and play a key role in health and disease prevention. My research focused on the purification of this milk components and their characterization using mass spectrometry.
