Research Description:

I am interested in the molecular and cellular events that drive neurodegenerative diseases, such as disrupted processing of protein aggregates leading to diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. My current research focuses on a set of molecular machinery involved in quality control within the secretory pathway that when dysregulated may be contributing to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and several other disease states.
