Personal profile

Research Interests

We focus on the assembly and function of primary cilia during normal and abnormal brain development. As a complement to our studies of cilia in the CNS, we also utilize Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to identify genetic pathways involved in the assembly and function of cilia. My research is in three areas: 1.) primary cilia in CNS and adrenal gland under conditions of stress, 2.) characterization of astrocytes primary cilia during neuroinflammation, 3.) regulation of ciliary assembly and function in Chlamydomonas.
