Personal profile

Research Interests

My primary research interests are in molecular mechanisms of gene regulation, particularly those involved in neural development and neural degeneration. My lab is focusing on two areas, RNA regulation and mechanisms underlying cell migration with particular interest in molecular/cellular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental disorders, cancer invasion/metastasis and neurodegenerative diseases.
