Evolutionary cell biology of the nucleus

I am an evolutionary cell biologist currently working with Buzz Baum at the MRC Lab for Molecular Cell Biology at UCL. I am interested in the evolution and remodelling of the nucleus, and I’ve taken a comparative approach to investigating this problem using one tractable model system with a nucleus (fission yeast) and one without (a close archaeal relative of eukaryotes, Sulfolobus). In Dec. 2020 I move to EMBL to start my own research group.

I received my PhD from Stanford University’s Department of Chemical and Systems Biology in 2015, where I worked with Tobias Meyer on the evolution of human gene regulatory modules. Before moving to California, I worked with Satyajit Mayor and Mukund Thattai at the National Centre for Biological Sciences, Bangalore, India, on genome-scale screens for endocytosis in Drosophila.
