Research Interests Epigenetic Regulation of Differentiation and Disease

We are particularly interested in studying how cell-fates are specified during developmentand 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 transcriptional reprogramming that defines cell-type identity during development and how this communication is altered in diseases such as cancer. 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 of cellular differentiation and carcinogenesis.
