Research

Overall, my research interests are focused on exploring the molecular mechanisms regulating adipocyte function, both normal and in the insulin-resistant state, the latter associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes, using a variety of experimental cell biology techniques. Specifically, we are interested in characterizing the changes of adipocyte morphology, shift in transcriptional regulation and hormonal response regulating lipid- and glucose metabolism during cell expansion.
