Research Interests

Kim-Shapiro Lab Music video (by Ryan Vest)

I am a Biophysicist. To find out more about biophysics: Biophysical Society

Main Goal: My research focuses on understanding how blood flow is regulated, particularloy by nitric oxide, nitrite and other nitrogen oxides. I rely on various forms of spectroscopy so I use light (including polarized light) to learn about biological structure and function.

Current interest: Study the effects of Nitric Oxide and Aggregation in biological systems, especially as it relates to diseases such as Sickle Cell Disease and other cardiovascular diseases.
