My thesis research is focused on developing rational therapies for osteosarcoma. Specifically, I am interested in exploiting new molecular means of targeting the Wnt signaling pathways in order to sensitize osteosarcoma to current chemotherapies.

Further, I am studying how Wnt protein production affects osteosarcoma growth via canonical and noncanonical Wnt signaling.
