Brief Bio:
My research activity has two main tracks: the role of sensory cilia in cellular mechanosensation and optical probes of matter.  Experimental tools we use include epithelial cell culture and electrophysiology, microscopy and laser tweezers, microfluidics and analytical modeling. Biological systems under investigation include renal and airway epithelial tissue.  We have many additional small-scale startup and feasibility experiments focusing on soft matter, so if you are a motivated student with an interest in learning many essential laboratory techniques, please stop by!
