My current focus is to bridge discoveries made at the bench and facilitate clinical trials to determine the utility of these discoveries in various neurodegenerative diseases. A specific interest of mine involves neurodegenerative disorders due to the accumulation of tau more commonly known as tauopathies.

I am currently involved in several projects. In collaboration with Dr. Cathrine Hoyo, we are investigating the relationship between epigenetics and the development of Alzheimer's disease. Additionally, I am trying to clinically characterize a neurogenetic disorder called Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC). Prior studies have shown that TSC patients develops a Frontotemporal Dementia syndrome due to the accumulation of phosphorylated tau later in life. I am also interested in investigating the genetics of Dementia with Lewy Body.
