Current or past study
I am interested in deciphering the transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms that give rise to cortical interneuron diversity. Recently, the Fishell Laboratory has mapped early cortical development at the transcriptional level. During my postdoc, I aim to investigate the epigenetic and chromatin modifications dictating cortical inhibitory differentiation by developing statistical methods for the characterization of the chromatin and epigenomic cellular landscape during development.
