Research Interests

The mission of our research program is to understand the regulatory mechanisms involved in mechanotransduction at cellular and subcellular levels, ultimately shedding light on the role of these processes in human disease. Specifically, our lab is currently engaged in the following projects:
1. Molecular pathways involved in cell mechanotransduction, coupling the extracellular matrix to the nucleus
2. Multiscale models of cardiovascular biomechanics, in particular the aortic valve
3. Bacterial mechanotransduction and microbiomes
4. Deep learning for biology (deep proteomics and deep genomics) and medicine (clinical classifications and diagnostics of cardiovascular diseases).
