Our research aims to define how epigenetic regulation occurs in mammals. We use X-chromosome inactivation, which results in transcriptional silencing of most genes along one of the two X-chromosomes in female mammals, to gain insights into epigenetic processes, including through chromatin modifications and long-non coding RNAs.

- What are your research interests? Observing how lncRNAs impact the epigenome.
- Who/what brought you to science? The desire to understand how genes make us both similar and unique.
- What advice would you give to students who’d like to get more involved in research? Work in areas that excite you, which inspire you!
- Are there any opportunities for students to engage in your projects, currently or in the future? Absolutely. The spectrum of projects span on rotation-scale to thesis to post-doctoral projects. We are a cohesive group that works in a very integrated manner.
- What skills would they need, and what could they expect to learn? Gene regulation in all its varied forms!
- What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Genetic anthropology.
