Research Interests

Brain Monitoring and Therapeutic Hypothermia

We focus on the development of novel translational tools for uncovering mechanisms of brain injury after cardiac arrest, monitoring and tracking the neurological injuries, and optimizing treatments like therapeutic hypothermia.

Peripheral Nerve Injury

We aim to develop novel methodology to promote nerve regeneration for peripheral nerve injury and developing novel nerve scaffold for the next generation of nerve signal controlled prosthetic limbs.
