EMBO Young Investigator
During development, precise control of gene expression allows the reproducible establishment of patterns. My goal is to elucidate the mechanisms responsible for gene expression precision and to link them to accuracy in cell fate decisions. My lab tackles this question with quantitative imaging, genetic manipulations, biophysics and modeling, to integrate the dynamic aspects of transcription and translation during Drosophila embryogenesis.
