I have always been fascinated by the amazing process of embryonic development, where a single cell develops into a complex, functional organism. I am particularly interested in understanding which genes contribute to normal development of the brain and eyes, two highly complex organs that enable us to perceive and process information from our environment.
I focus on major questions, for example, how normal development is achieved and why sometimes things go wrong and congenital malformations occur. Understanding the genetic basis of normal and abnormal brain and eye development is necessary for providing genetic counseling and for preventing congenital debilitating brain defects.
