His works focuses on investigating angiogenesis and its cellular, molecular and mechanical interactions with the extracellular matrix. He employs the intersegmental vessel model in the zebrafish, coupled with high-resolution microscopy and cutting-edge CRISPR-CasRx systems for transcriptomic modifications, to elucidate the cellular underpinnings of this complex biological process.
