My research expertise is in adipose tissue differentiation and fibrosis. I am interested in examining the links between dysfunctional adipose tissue and the development of cardiometabolic diseases using both both biomarker data from large scale cohort studies and more mechanistic experiments using in-vitro models of adipocyte development.
