Research Description:

I am interested in understanding the underlying mechanisms of axon guidance and outgrowth during early neural development. We use zebrafish embryos as a model to tease out the cytoskeletal and cell trafficking dynamics, as well as cell signaling and guidance cues during axon outgrowth and synapse assembly.
