Research interests: 

I am interested in how life emerges from the self-organization of molecules, and to that end, enjoy simulating and building in vitro reconstitutions of biological systems. Currently, I use force and fluorescence microscopy, physical modeling, and biochemistry to study how microtubules in the spindle are nucleated and how these microtubules find and move chromosomes to facilitate eukaryotic cell division.
