Research Interests

As an environmental Toxicologist, my research has focused on determining the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie disease development and progression. Areas of expertise include 1) assessment of oxidative stress, including both analytical quantitation and biochemical characterization; 2) epigenetic modifications and gene regulation and 3) role of inflammatory processes in disease progression.
