Assistant Professor




Area of Interest

My research interests center around the characterization of absorption, distribution, and metabolism of drugs and metals, including essential metals (iron, zinc and manganese) and toxic heavy metals (lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic), and metal-induced toxicity in the context of environmental exposure and genetic susceptibility (gene-environment interactions).
