Research interests

My group is interested in what defines human cells and how their phenotype emerges from the complex interplay between the genome, transcriptome and environment. We develop methods that leverage the large volume of gene expression, epigenetic and interaction data that is being generated to develop biological hypotheses about how certain perturbations can influence the fate a cell. Our goal is to allow for the systematic identification of determinants of cell fate that can be used to further our understanding of cell biology, but also to develop new cell and gene therapies.
