Research Interests

Axonemal dynein, Protein tagging, Translational regulation, CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing, PCD Mouse modelling

My thesis focuses on understanding the complex assembly of  axonemal dynein proteins, the machines responsible for cilia movement.  I have also worked on improving the ability of CRISPR/Cas9 editing technology  to correct mutations in DNA for therapy. 

My main interests lie in using the power of genome editing to manipulate complex biological systems, allowing their intricacies to be teased apart and better understood.
