I have a diverse interdisciplinary background, having obtained a B.S. in Engineering Physics, an M.S. in Physics, and a Ph.D. in Biological Engineering. My research interests converge at the intersection of biophysics, physiology, and engineering, exploring the intricate area of vascular biology and pathophysiology. In particular, I am interested in studying conditions such as diabetes and hypertension in the context of sex difference research. Currently, I am investigating how glycocalyx disruption leads to endothelial dysfunction, impaired flow-mediated dilation, and arterial stiffening, key factors in cardiovascular diseases. I am working to advance our understanding of the physiological and biophysical mechanisms that modulate the endothelial glycocalyx. This understanding is vital for the development of therapeutic strategies to improve cardiovascular outcomes.
