Research Summary

We study how animals maintain physiological homeostasis in stressful environments. Our research is currently focused on understanding how oxygen and hydrogen sulfide integrate in cellular homeostasis mechanisms. Current projects include understanding how low oxygen (hypoxia) impacts proteostasis mechanisms, understanding the epigenetic responses to hydrogen sulfide, and mapping molecular and genetic pathways that regulate hydrogen sulfide signaling and toxicity.
