Research Interests



My research focuses on oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction that contribute to pathogenesis of a wide range of environmental agents affecting human health. Using genetic and pharmacological approaches and various cellular and animal models we are determining molecular mechanisms of chemicals induced oxidative damage, and dissecting the molecular components of mitochondrial genetic and bioenergetic alterations caused be environmental toxicants.
