Research

My lab is interested in understanding how the cytoskeleton, the nuclear lamina, and the membrane network coordinate with one another to regulate cell division and differentiate. We employ a variety of model systems to study the mechanism of cell division. Using embryonic stem cells (ESC) and mouse embryos, we also study how cell migration, cellular morphogenesis, and cell division are coupled to development and tissue homeostasis.
