Personal profile

Research Interests

I have developed a strong research interest in basic reproductive biology and endocrinology to feed the underlying knowledge required to develop treatments that can protect or restore fertility and hormone function. My independent research laboratory strives to understand how the ovarian niche maintains and promotes gametogenesis; to use this information to generate in vitro models and implantable bioprosthetic ovaries as a regenerative means to support endocrine function and gamete production in patients with primary ovarian insufficiency, and to engineer endocrine organs that support sex hormone production.
