Research Focus

We are interested in platelets and their role in human health and disease. My current research focuses is on understanding biomolecular and biophysical aspects of 

  • platelet-bacteria interactions
  • platelet cytoskeletal mechanics
  • platelet receptor-ligand interactions  
  • platelet-platelet interactions
  • platelet receptor dynamics

We develop and apply novel experimental methods based on integration of bio-engineering, biophysics, nano-micro-technology and quantitative fluorescence imaging approaches to address fundamental questions in platelet biology and translational transfusion medicine.
