Areas of Interest: CSF Dynamics, Congenital, Developmental Biology, Genetics


Research focus:

My lab investigates craniosynostosis, a congenital craniofacial malformation that can associate with hydrocephalus and raised intracranial pressure. We are using our models to understand how changes to intracranial pressure and CSF hydrodynamics in craniosynostosis affect the development and integration of meningeal lymphatic networks and the brain’s glymphatic system, and how failure of these systems to properly function affects brain waste clearance.
