My research interests include the study of the normal physiology of the trabecular meshwork and the mechanisms that contribute to the functional alterations of this tissue in glaucoma. Specifically, I am interested in the effects that mechanical and oxidative stress may have in the physiology of the outflow pathway, the process of normal aging of the trabecular meshwork, and the pathogenesis of glaucoma.
