Research & Clinical Interest

Our group’s research mainly focuses on understanding regulatory network dynamics associated with neurogenic hypertension, cardiovascular health and alcohol toxicity on liver repair and regeneration. We use computational modeling, systems engineering and bioinformatics approaches to complement high-throughout experimentation.  My current interests are  (1) Developing new control strategies that can harness the functionality, and adaptive capacity of the intrinsic cardiac nervous system (ICN) that can lead to neuromodulaiton therapy developments for interventions in heart disease, using an integrative multi-scale modeling approach and (2) understanding the genetic mechanisms and processes that contribute to the remodeling of brainstem autonomic nervous system in response to the development of hypertension.
