Research Interests

Our lab’s goal is to understand molecular and cellular mechanisms of peri-implantation human development using animal as well as human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC)-based in vitro organoid models in conjunction with single-cell, proteomic and genome editing tools. I am interested in identifying mechanosensory receptors/signaling pathways, as well as key factors that control amnion development.
