Areas of Special Interest
Tonia's research interests include native and pathologic tissue heterogeneity, its effects on the local mechanics of tissues, and the development of ways to mimic these heterogeneities in tissue engineered constructs . Outside of the lab, she likes exploring Philly, taking dance classes, reading, hiking, and cocktail making.
