Research Interests:
Developmental regulation

My laboratory investigates the mechanisms that pattern developing organs. We carry out our studies on the fruit fly, as it offers many advantages with its ready accessibility to histological analysis and the ease with which genetic manipulations can be made. We focus on two systems  the fly wing and the fly lung. Both are model systems that offer opportunities to identify and characterize basic genetic and molecular mechanisms that are relevant to human development and disease.
