I am committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion, and providing safe and supportive research environments. My lab has regular meetings for discussing DEI, particularly on what we can do to make our lab a welcoming and nurturing environment in which everyone feels encouraged to speak out their thoughts.

The focus of our research is to address how neurons develop to form neural circuits and how defects in this process lead to brain disorders (e.g., Down syndrome). We take a broad, cross-disciplinary approach, including genetics, cell biology, developmental biology, biochemistry, advanced imaging, electrophysiology, computation, and behavioral studies, and use both mice and Drosophila in our rese
