Research Interests

I am interested in understanding the mechanosensitivity of cells during the organogenesis of connective tissues, with a particular focus on the nervous system (both central and peripheral). Additionally, I am interested in engineering Blood-Brain Barrier organoid models using microfluidics for applications in disease modelling and drug discovery.

If you share a research interest similar to mine and are a prospective PhD student or postdoctoral researcher, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
