Personal profile

Research interests

My lab is interested in the cytoskeletal machinery underlying cell morphogenesis. Our current work focuses on the cortical microtubule cytoskeleton and seeks to understand how it becomes organized into particular arrays and how these arrays in turn guide directional cell expansion. We use a combination of single molecule imaging, live-cell imaging, molecular genetics and computer simulations to understand how activities at the molecular level impact microtubule organization and function at the cellular level.

Mentoring

My lab is a close-knit and interactive team, with people pursuing a broad range of projects based on their interests. My goal is to train students to become creative and rigorous researchers, and to enable and support their engagement in career and professional development opportunities. I have worked hard to create a lab environment where all trainees feel welcome and empowered to pursue their chosen scientific career.
