Personal profile

Research interests

Research Expertise: 
Epigenetics | Genomics | Histone modifications

My research interests are in the field of Epigenetics, which I approach by working to identify the epigenetic marks and molecular mechanisms responsible for causing and maintaining the inheritance of acquired states.

Investigating the capacity of conserved protein catalytic domains to establish and maintain epigenetic modifications in S. cerevisiae with the ultimate goal establishing the causal role of histone packaging in regulating gene expression. 

Specifically, my laboratory has created a suite of fusion proteins using CRISPR technology to target H3K9me to eGFP tagged endogenous S. cerevisiae genes which we interrogate expression levels using qRT-PCR as flow cytometry.

Testing the hypothesis that mammalian spermatic chromatin is highly organized and that this patterning can function to drive Transgenerational Epigenetic Inheritance.  Determining the genome-wide organization of chromatin in germ cells using genomic and bioinformatics approaches.  We are currently working with previously/externally generated datasets but will also be investigating spermatic chromatin in the context of Ctcf mutant mice at Rowan University as this project matures.
