Education

PhD, Physiology, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, 2006

MSc, Pharmacology, University of Bradford, Bradford, UK, 1997

BSc, Physiology, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK, 1993

Research Interests

Hypertension, Blood Vessels, S-nitrosothiols, Endothelial Cells

My research interests focus on the role of the endothelium in the pathology of hypertension. I am especially interested in S-nitrosothiols and how their mobilization within endothelial cells or lack thereof may contribute to hypertension. I use a variety of techniques in my lab such as histology, ultrastructural microscopy, molecular biology, in vivo and in vitro techniques.
