About Me

I am working on several projects including the investigation of neuropeptide expression level and spatial distribution changes in blue crabs after exposure to silver nanoparticles, studying the extracellular matrix (ECM) alterations during the progression of ovarian cancer, and characterizing human pancreatic and islet ECM proteome at different developmental ages.

I truly enjoy the freedom of investigating a broad range of research interests, as well as the open discussion of ideas with my great PI and intelligent colleagues.
