SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I have keen interest in exploring the role of glial cells in different functions of the brain. I strongly believe that glial cells may functionally be as important as neuronal cells. Also, I am interested in phylogenetic studies of brain development exploring possible mechanisms of neuroregeneration in various organisms.
