PhD Candidate

Focus Area:
Effects of steady and oscillatory flow on cardiovascular cell communication and phenotypic expression.

Research Interest:
Computational studies have shown certain flow profiles promote valvular and vascular tissue formation. My research interest involves defining flow profiles that promote healthy and diseased valvular and vascular phenotypes.
