Research Interest: Currently, a Senior Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School in collaboration with the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden. Formerly, an NIH Pre-Doctoral IRTA Research Fellow as part of the National Institutes of Health – Karolinska Institutet Graduate Partnerships Program in Neuroscience. My overall research interests aim to dissect the metabolic consequences and underlying mechanisms of mitochondrial dysfunction that contribute to aging and disease, including various age-related diseases such as neurodegenerative diseases. I use transgenic mouse models together with cell culture to address my questions, employing both in vivo and in vitro techniques. Lifestyle interventions, such as diet and exercise, and pharmaceutical treatments to counteract both aging phenotypes and mitochondrial diseases are also being investigated.
