Personal profile

Research Interests

Use molecular/genetic approaches with Drosophila to investigate two areas: 1) Understanding how individual cells control their shapes and coordinate with other cells to create the complex epithelial tubular networks found in multicellular organisms. 2) Understanding how non-neuronal cells sense and respond to elevated levels of CO2 (hypercapnia) such as those present in patients with obstructive disease.  Our work has identified conserved genes that mediate hypercapnic suppression of innate immune responses in flies and mammals.
