Current Research

Currently, I am working under supervision of Dr. Megan McCain at the Laboratory for Living Systems Engineering. My project focus on the comparison of the structure and function of mitochondria in engineered cardiac tissues as a function of matrix stiffness. The project uses tissue engineering, microscopy and image processing techniques to determine how extracellular matrix stiffness regulates the structure and function of mitochondria in cardiac myocytes.
