Research Summary: 

We are interested in understanding how genome structure relates to function. Towards this, we develop new super resolution microscopy approaches to follow chromatin looping, enhancer-promoter communication, and transcription in living cells with single molecule resolution. We are particularly interested in understanding how 3D genome architecture regulates gene expression during development, and how dysregulation of genome topology can cause disease.
