 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
My work converges the areas of genetics, cell biology, molecular biology and biochemistry to understand how cell polarity is established and maintained. I also use techniques in these areas to explore how piRNAs protect the cell from DNA damage.

 Self-Described Keywords
  • cell polarity
  • DNA damage
  • Drosophila
  • germ cell
  • molecular motors
  • piRNA
