Research Description:

As a PI, I have not only deep knowledge of the fields of brain neural and vascular biology but am also knowledgeable of several other fields including epigenetics and immunology.

In specific regard to graduate student and postdoc training and mentoring, I provide them with consistent and regular guidance of both scientific research, including critical thinking, experimental design, and lab techniques, and career development, including career choice, planning, and networking. I discuss pro and cons of experimental design with them on a weekly basis, organize journal clubs and discuss both experiment design and data interpretation with them. Specifically, I emphasize potential pitfalls or blind spots in experimental design and data interpretation on these occasions.

Research Focus:

Brain Development, Brain Degeneration, Cerebral Cortex Disease
