Personal profile

Research Interests

My work focuses on studying the effects of ALK2 mutations on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, a lethal pediatric brain tumor that affects approximately 200-300 children per year. Through the use of genetically engineered mouse models, we are currently investigating the mechanism underlying ALK2 mutations on tumor biology and determining whether such mutations can be used as therapeutic targets for treating the disease.

My academic focus is to continue to improve our mouse models of DIPG so that we can more effectively screen possible treatments for children.
