Research Interests:

We study the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate brain development and neurodevelopmental disorders. Our lab has three specific areas of interest:

  1. To examine the mechanisms that regulate the development of neuronal connections (synapses).
  2. To study how risk genes for neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorders impact synaptic development.
  3. Use high-throughput and high-content imaging to perform screening on stem cell-derived neurons for drug development.
