I use a combination of wet-lab and computational approaches to study promoter-enhancer interactions in the context of gene regulatory networks.
I use population genetics approaches to understand the logic of enhancer-promoter interactions.
Monica is investigating the logic of gene regulation by enhancer elements in human pluripotent cells.
Michiel is studying the epigenetic properties and dynamics of promoter interactions in 3D space.
Lina uses single-cell transcriptomics to study vascular smooth muscle cell plasticity.
Anna works with Helen to study the chromatin properties of genetic variants.
I am interested in the logic and robustness of gene regulation. I am also interested in keeping the group happy and motivated.
