I am interested in cell and tissue morphology, both from the point of view of visualization techniques and from the perspective of the cellular determinants of morphology, like the cytoskeleton, and cellular physiology.
I am particularly interested in the fine organization of the cytoskeleton of sound-detector cells in the inner ear and in the morphological changes in tumor microenvironment.
