“I am interested in understanding the function of genes by studying the molecular interactions of their gene products and how these contribute to cellular and organismal health. I am also interested in mechanisms of gene regulation the dynamics of gene expression in response to internal and environmental cues. How genotype and phenotype are connected, and how gene expression responds to changes in the environment are broadly what I want to study. I would like to focus on discovering novel molecular mechanisms and ways of thinking about these basic biology concepts.”
