Research Interests

My lab studies the mechanisms by which transcriptional enhancers control gene expression during development, using genetic, biochemical, evolutionary, and bioinformatics approaches. We focus on enhancers that are directly regulated by cell signaling pathways, including Hedgehog, Wnt, Notch, and MAPK, all of which play important roles in development and disease.
