Research interests

  1. Modeling pediatric cardiac diseases using patient-specific hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes. Primary models in development include: Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT) and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).
  2. Investigating the use of the CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing system to correct disease-causing mutations in human pluripotent stem cells.
  3. Exploring the functional consequences of microgravity on human cardiac development, with implications for future space-colonization.


  1. Microscale Generation of Cardiospheres Promotes Robust Enrichment of Cardiomyocytes Derived from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells [25254340]
    Generation of cardiospheres represents a simple and robust method for enrichment of cardiomyocytes in microtissues that have the potential use in regenerative medicine as well as other applications.

  2. Blood-Informative Transcripts Define Nine Common Axes of Peripheral Blood Gene Expression


    We describe a novel approach to capturing the covariance structure of peripheral blood gene expression that relies on the identification of highly conserved Axes of variation.
