Research synopsis: 

My research centers on clinical aspects and epidemiology of chronic eye pain. I am especially interested in neuropathic pain related to dry eye syndrome and systemic diseases (diabetes, for example) as well as the role of corneal nerves in the modulating alloimmunity. I also am using imaging of peripheral and central pathways of pain. All of my projects share an aim of identifying underlying immunomodulatory and neural mechanisms behind neuropathic pain progression and chronification.
