Research Interests: 

My research program focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms how dietary factors differentially affect conversion of white adipocytes into energy-expending beige adipocytes. We are currently investigating the signaling networks among toll-like receptor 4 (TRL4)-mediated innate immunity, ER stress, and autophagic degradation of mitochondria.
