Technical expertise: Use of stable isotopes (2H2O, 18O, 17O) includes both applications and analysis, to study energy expenditure and de novo lipogenesis, as well as the use of 13C and 2H labeled compounds for tracing and discovery of metabolic pathways

Organs of interest: liver, heart, brain

Research focus: Impact of tissue injury and obesity on organ metabolism. More recently, I have been studying the effects of energy imbalance associated with cystic fibrosis (in skeletal muscle, adipose) and brain injury (related to aging, oxidative injury).
