Research Associate

Research Interest:
I am broadly interested in understanding how epigenetic mechanisms influence fertility and embryonic development.  My research focuses on studying histone post-translational modifications during mouse and human spermatogenesis, how they influence chromatin packaging in the gamate, and subsequently the effect that has on the developing embryo and subsequent developmental programming.
