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.
