Research

My lab studies how distinct subcellular compartments are established in neurons and how this process contributes to the organization of the nervous system. We are particularly interested in the differential development between dendrites and axons and the strategic distribution of synapses in neurons. We employ a multi-disciplinary approach, including genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, and advanced multi-dimensional imaging, to study these problems in both Drosophila and mammals. Our studies provide critical insights to the assembly, function, plasticity, and disorders of the nervous system.
