Current research in my lab focuses on cytoplasmic organization and how cells form non-membrane bound compartments, including stress granules, centrosomes, and spindles. We are interested in understanding the physical-chemical mechanisms that control the formation of these compartments and how cells regulate this process. We study this process in C. elegans, HeLa cells, and iPS cells.
