Institute of Human Genetics - CNRS

I’m a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow in Giacomo Cavalli’s lab at the Institute of Human Genetics – CNRS in Montpellier, France. My research focuses on understanding how epigenetic mechanisms and 3D genome organization control cell fate decisions during development, evolution and disease.

The long-term goals of my research is to identify how chromatin architecture regulates gene expression at the single cell level and how genome evolution has contributed to the massive expansion of the cortex in humans. To accomplish these goals, I am using a multidisciplinary approach combining genomics, single-cell technologies and CRISPR-Cas9 strategies to address fundamental questions in epigenetics and developmental neuroscience.
