Research Interests:

Mutations in T-box transcription factors have been identified as causative in a subset of human congenital heart disease cases. Due to this link to congenital heart disease, the most common birth defect, the imperative lies in elucidating the mechanisms by which members of the T-box transcription factor family function to modulate normal heart development. My research entails determining the role of T-box transcriptions factors in cardiac development.
