Research Interest:

Generally, I am interested in the application of genetic tools in neuroscience and cancer. In the past, I have worked in neuroimaging and eye diseases. My neuroimaging research was focused on understanding the cerebrovascular changes involved in stroke and aging. During my post- graduate years, I researched a wide range of ophthalmological diseases, such as retinitis pigmentosa, myopia, and uveal melanoma.
