My research concentrates on the interface of biology and chemistry with the practical applications in forensics, gerontology, toxicology, and cancer studies. In particular, lately, I am interested in studying effects of lead, mercury, and cadmium on the proteome (and also particular proteins) in human population, childen and adults. Also, I plan on developing several biochemistry and proetomics laboratories for educational purposes. Please see my CV for my publication and grant record.
As a graduate and postdoctoral student, and later, as a teacher, I learned that it is extremely important to diversify one’s interests in research and, for the undergraduate level, to choose projects appropriate for young researchers that are expected to yield results and give a sense of completion and satisfaction. Thus, I design short projects for my undergraduate students while achieving goals of long-term projects.
