I am currently investigating the epigenetic mechanisms governing stem cell lineage commitment. Specifically, I am interested in identifying key epigenetic regulators and histone marks required for the commitment of mesenchymal stem cells to the osteoblast lineage.

My long term goal is to use this knowledge as a foundation for the development of pharmacological based approaches for stem cell engineering and tissue regeneration applications.
