Research Summary

Our broad goal is to understand the mechanisms that animals use to maintain homeostasis. We are particularly interested in how hydrogen sulfide signaling integrates with homeostasis mechanisms to impact cellular physiology, both in beneficial and pathological situations. Current project include defining pathways that mediate physiological effects of hydrogen sulfide, mechanisms of cellular hydrogen sulfide metabolism, and understanding the epigenetic effects of environmental exposures.

DEI Statement

My goal is to disrupt systemic practices and structures that limit how people from historically excluded backgrounds can engage with biomedical research. I am chair of the Biochemistry DEI committee, a founding member of the UW School of Medicine Basic Sciences Task force for justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and co-director of the UW Allies program.
