Research Interests

Crossovers (COs) between homologous chromosomes ensure proper meiosis I segregation; failure to produce a CO results in nondisjunction and sterility. Although CO formation is tightly controlled, the mechanisms that implement genome-wide COs remain poorly understood. I am interested in examining CO control mechanisms such as interference, homeostasis, and distribution using Drosophila as a model.
