I develop optical tools for imaging the behavior of cells within in vivo preparations. I apply these tools in many systems, but have particular interests in studying the effects of microvascular dysfunction in the heart and brain. These disorders trigger the recruitment and activation of many immune and inflammatory cell types that, together with the local cells, determine the course of the lesion progression.
