    Areas of expertise

    General: Cerebrovascular, cardiovascular, and reproductive physiology.

    Specific:  Cerebrovascular abnormalities in pregnancy and preeclampsia, cerebral edema, blood-brain barrier permeability, cerebral blood flow autoregulation, cerebrovascular myogenic reactivity.

    Research methods

    Surgical techniques such as: Rat and mouse model of placental ischemia (reduced uterine perfusion pressure), chronic infusions via implantation of mini-osmotic pumps. Molecular techniques such as: Western blot, ELISA, histology, vessel transfections, etc… Acute measurement of arterial blood pressure via catheter, Ex-vivo measurement of cerebrovascular function, cerebral blood flow autoregulation.
