I am a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Nick Barker at A*STAR, Singapore, where I study the functions of stomach stem cells in driving regeneration and disease. Previously, as a graduate student in the lab of Nicolas Plachta, I explored the role of cytoskeletal filaments in orchestrating the development and morphogenesis of the early mouse embryo. During my undergraduate degree at Duke University, I also worked with Dave Sherwood to study gene regulators of anchor cell invasion in C. elegans.
