Research:

Post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in Drosophila with a focus on RNA-binding proteins and small RNAs


Education:

Postdoctoral Fellow:  Stanford University
M.Phil., Ph.D.:  Yale University
B.Sc., B.Sc.(Hon):  University of Natal, Durban, South Africa 


Fields of Interest:

  • Genetic Models of Development and Disease
  • Functional Genomics and Proteomics

Research Interests:

We study post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in Drosophila with a focus on RNA-binding proteins and small RNAs that regulate the stability, subcellular localization and translation of maternal mRNAs in early embryos. We use gene-by-gene and genome-wide analyses of the transcriptome, ribonome and proteome.
