Research Overview

We study the role of Mechanics and Transport processes in cellular physiology using a combination of mathematical modeling and experimental techniques such as fluorescence microscopy, atomic force microscopy, microelectrode measurements of nitric oxide, and a variety of custom-designed devices for mechanically stimulating cells.
