RESEARCH:

Post-transcriptional gene regulation; mRNA-protein complexes


EDUCATION:

Postdoctoral Fellow: Whitehead Institute
Ph.D.: University of Oxford
B.Sc.: Brown University


FIELDS OF INTEREST:

  • Cellular & Molecular Structure & Function
  • Computational & Systems Biology

RESEARCH INTERESTS:

The success of every organism rests upon proper control of gene expression, and each step in the life cycle of an mRNA provides opportunity for regulation. Our over-arching goal is to decipher the framework underlying port-transcriptional regulation, and to integrate this perspective with broader biological processes, especially development and cancer.
