Research interest: To understand the role of ECM in nerve development and regeneration. My research provides new information about how changes in major components of the ECM modulate neurons, neurites and growth cone morphologies. It is helpful to define the contributions of neuron-ECM interactions to nerve development and regeneration.

Research Interest: I am analyzing matrix changes related to diabetes since the significant complications of diabetes is fibrosis in the retina. My research focuses on the effects of elevated glucose conditions on endothelial cells and astrocytes, two key matrix-producing cells in the eye, and determining the contributions of these cells to excess extracellular matrix levels in diabetic retinopathy.

Research Interest: In many human diseases, extracellular matrix accumulates abnormally, which disrupts normal tissue function. The goal of my thesis research is to probe and modulate how cells assemble a fibronectin matrix in order to determine how matrix accumulation impacts cell behavior and suggest potential ways to combat pathological matrix assembly.
