Research Summary

I am interested in understanding the role of genetics in human development and disease.

Extensive Research Description

Currently, I work on understanding molecular mechanisms that underly stem and progenitor cell fate decisions. I have developed a novel method for time-lapse microscopy of bipotent progenitors dividing and committing to two potential lineages. I also study the function of specific domains within a co-transcriptional activator during megakaryocytopoiesis.
