Research interests

Our understanding of complex tissue interactions at a systems level remains rudimentary, limiting our ability to dissect mechanisms underlying diseases and develop novel therapeutics. Cellular, molecular and mouse models have recently revealed that the skeleton is not merely an endocrine target but also a secretory organ, modulating systemic energy homeostasis. My research therefore focuses on using novel imaging techniques in experimental models and clinical data to determine if bone and cartilage disease alters global metabolism with the purpose of contributing to the development of new pharmacological approaches for managing and treating skeletal, metabolic, and cardiovascular disease.
