Research Focus

How do cells integrate information to make decisions about what genes should be expressed at a given time and in a given place? How do these processes malfunction to produce disease states? The correct regulation of gene expression is essential for the proper functioning of the cell, and incorrect regulation of genes is central to the mechanisms of many diseases. My interests rest in understanding how the many levels of eukaryotic gene regulation work together to perform these functions, using computational and functional genomics tools.
