Tell us about yourself.
I received my B.S. and Ph.D from the University of Pittsburgh in 2011 where I studied the impact of pregnancy, maternal birth injury, and mesh implantation on vaginal biomechanics. Afterwards, I became a Marie Curie Postdoc in the Department of Development and Regeneration at the KULeuven in Belgium. I then did a second post doc at the Georgia Institute of Technology, on a NASA funded project, to understand how ocular pressures and choroidal swelling impacts eye deformation.
What is the laboratory’s focus?
Women’s Health in Vision Research
Our goal is to investigate risk factors and potential treatments for glaucoma, with a focus is on women’s health. We use multiple approaches to understand visual, biomechanical, and gene expression changes due to age, menopause, and glaucoma.
