Personal profile

Research Interests

The overall goal of my research program is to understand the mechanisms of mammalian reproduction, in particular, how germline stem cells, meiosis and gamete differentiation, are regulated in mammals, using combined genetic, development and evolutionary approaches. We work with both mouse and Drosophila systems as well as cell culture to characterize the roles of highly conserved components of regulatory machinery for stem cell and reproductive development. We are also interested in translational research which extends our findings from animal models into reproductive medicine, in particular in our battles against reproductive cancers and infertility.
