My Work

We are particularly interested in studying how cell-fates are specified during development and miss-specified in diseases.
The research in my lab is aimed at achieving an integrated molecular and systems-level understanding of the mechanisms by which epigenetic machinery and transcription factors contribute to gene expression reprogramming that defines cell-type identity during development and how this communication is altered in diseases. To investigate these questions, we employ a multidisciplinary approach combining cutting-edge epigenetics and genomics together with computational biology tools in sophisticated and defined models.
