   Research Interests  

Mechanisms of bystander effects on in vivo systems using microbeams. Current, efforts are centered in understanding bystander effects using C. elegans as a model.

Develop high-throughput automated technologies, specifically using F.I.S.H. technique, to assess radiation exposure levels (biodosimetry) to be used in radiological emergencies.
