Research Interests

My lab's overarching goal is solving life science challenges using microsystems tools. An area of particular interest is neuropsychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia. With induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cells, we seek to understand multicellular interactions such as metabolic coupling in the neurovascular unit, and how dysfunction is related with the these disorders. With engineered microfluidic platforms, we provide the cells with relevant biophysical and biochemical environments. With sensor development, we monitor biomarkers from cellular function to point-of-care diagnostic applications.
