Research & Publications
I am an ion channel scientist with research experience in biophysics, neuroscience, and physiology. My research has primarily centered on the molecular basis of the sense of touch, particularly the detection of tactile stimuli by the cells within the Pacinian and Meissner touch corpuscles in the skin. I employ electrophysiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, as well as volume electron microscopy to understand the intricate molecular mechanisms underlying the sense of touch.
