My overall research interest is to elucidate the fundamental molecular mechanisms that regulate glucose and lipid metabolism through the study of transcriptional and translational regulators that control energy homeostasis in response to physiological (i.e. fasting) and environmental (i.e. caloric excess) stress. Our work focuses on understanding transcriptional and microRNA regulatory networks and their interactions in pancreatic b-cells, liver, fat and hypothalamus.
