Research Activities

My research focuses on human mitochondria, essential organelles best known for generating both energy and reactive oxygen species (ROS). However, mitochondria are also key regulators of many other important cellular functions and their dysfunction has been implicated in a broad spectrum of human disorders and aging. My research interests comprise two key aspects of mitochondria, mitochondrial dynamics and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA).
