Research Interests: Development and Evolution
The genome regulatory network in echinoderms leading from the fertilized egg to the formation of an embryonic skeleton is vast and complex. We study gene regulation and expression, and the evolution of these processes in related organisms. We also use genomic and proteomic approaches to understand embryonic development at a systems level.
