Research Focus

My research focuses on translational approaches for preeclampsia therapy, with an emphasis on cell signaling targets downstream of abnormal hormonal inputs in the diseased state. Other interests include fundamental changes in vascular biology and function in response to pregnancy, and how those changes may be affected by preeclampsia.
