Personal profile

Research interests

I am a developmental biologist interested in the complex processes that control the intricate development of the craniofacial skeleton. My work has focused on neural crest cells, a magnificent, multipotent cell population that gives rise to the majority of the craniofacial skeleton during embryogenesis. I have used mouse and zebrafish models to study the pathophysiology of human craniofacial disorders and I have recently discovered a novel role for the transcription factor Ronin in craniofacial development and ribosome biogenesis. I am currently interested in using molecular biology, histology, and genetic approaches to better understand the transcriptional regulation of neural crest cells and their subsequent differentiation into facial bone and cartilage.
