I have recently completed my PhD working between the labs of Tristan Rodriguez and Jesus Gil at Imperial College London and the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences. My project during this time was focussed on understanding the mechanisms orchestrating cell competition during early mouse embryogenesis.
I am now starting a postdoc working in the lab of Fernando Camargo at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital. I am interested in the mechanisms of growth regulation in development, stem cell behaviour and maintenance, and cell heterogeneity in homeostasis and disease. During my postdoc I will be using single-cell technologies to better understand these areas.
