Chromatin biology, reproductive epigenetics, and aging lab

Exploring genetic and epigenetic mechanisms that govern chromosome inheritance during meiosis and early development.


Specifically, we aim to define how the centromere, an epigenetic mark that controls chromosome segregation, is inherited through unique challenges presented by reproduction and embryogenesis.  


We use cell biology, microscopy, evolution guided genetics, comparative reproductive biology, and biochemistry to address open questions in reproductive epigenetics.

We are recruiting at all levels! Join us!

We are strongly committed to creating a collaborative, inclusive and diverse work environment that fosters a nurturing community in line with the goals of Cornell University and the NIH FIRST program
