Active Projects

I have broad academic interests related to the field of neuropathology. In particular, I am interested in the relationships between the nervous system, the neuromuscular system and the immune system, and the impact of these relationships to human disease. Translating these interests to practice, my research is focused on the development and safe implementation of new technologies to assist the pathologist with their microscopic examination.
