Biography and Education


I am a post-doc in the lab of Dr. John Gensel working on elucidating how the demographic variables of sex and age contribute to spinal cord injury and recovery. Further, I am investigating how persistant inflammation after spinal cord injury affects axon regeneration in the chronically injured spinal cord.

Current projects working under Dr. John Gensel focus on elucidating how age affects spinal cord injury and repair, with an emphasis on age-dependent increases in inflammatory-derived reactive oxygen species production and decreased anti-oxidant defense. We hope to identify how age mediates these deleterious effects on SCI and identify tailored therapeutic strategies to improve functional outcomes.
