My ongoing graduate studies focus on the understanding and modulating macrophage-mediated wound healing using biomaterials composed of synthetic and extracellular matrix components. My research aims to address the unmet need of viable wound care for chronic non-­healing wounds, a growing clinical and economic burden with the rise of diabetes and metabolic disease, among others.
