Director, Animal Physiology Core


I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Davis Lab, and my background is in cardiac physiology. My main research interest is calcium handling in human cardiac progenitor cells. I aim to characterize the mechanisms by which cardiac progenitor cells are able to cycle calcium in response to electrical stimulation and use this knowledge to induce the cells to become a better therapy for pediatric heart failure.
