My research interests focus on the similarities and differences in chromatin structure among different cell types and how chromatin remodeling factors that modulate these differences regulate cell fate. The longterm goals of my laboratory are to comprehensively understand the functions, targets, regulation, and mechanisms of action of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) and chromatin regulatory factors with critical functions in the embryonic stem (ES) cell gene regulatory network, through development, and in disease states. Active research areas in my laboratory include: (1) identifying chromatin remodelers that regulate ncRNA expression; (2) determining the function of two uncharacterized classes of ncRNAs in ES cells; (3) characterizing molecular changes occurring in cancer cell lines with chromatin remodeler mutations; (4) optimizing and expanding the utilization of a novel technique for profiling chromatin binding proteins, CUT&RUN. Enabling these studies, my research spans the disciplines of genomics, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics.
