I am a postdoctoral research associate in Tony Southall’s group in the Department of Life Sciences. I am interested in investigating the changing epigenetic landscapes that underpin cell differentiation and the mechanisms that regulate these changes. I am particularly interested in how these processes drive and maintain differentiated states in the central nervous system. I have been using genetics and molecular biology tools to address these questions in Drosophila.
