Discipline/Expertise:The overarching theme of my research is to investigate the effect of renal denervation on different physiological parameters in animal models of diabetic nephropathy and chronic kidney disease. In particular, I am interested in how and why renal denervation reduces the progression of hypertension and renal disease. I have also been conducting studies involve the measures of sympathetic nerve activity from multiple target organs in experimental models.
