My research focuses on the role of hif1a, a stress responsive transcription factor, in developmental patterning and regeneration. I’m interested in understanding how tissue level environments influence cell fate and morphogenesis during development and how the gene regulatory mechanisms that regulate these processes are re-utilized during regeneration.
