Research Area: Stem cell transcriptional regulation

My current research is focused on a class of proteins that are responsible for regulating DNA methylation in embryonic stem cells. Specifically, how these proteins are able to modulate transcription by epigenetic modification of specific loci during pluripotency and differentiation. Insights gained from this research will help us to better understand disease states characterized by aberrant differentiation.
