Research interests:

I am interested in deciphering the fundamental principles guiding precision of information processing in biological systems. Using experimental approaches on Drosophila embryos, I seek to understand how various regulatory elements control genetic interactions at the early developmental stages, leading to precise pattern formation. I am also interested in understanding how regulatory protein molecules induce local topological changes to the chromatin architecture, facilitating transcription. With this, I hope to understand the genetic bases of diversity and evolution.
