Research interests:

 

My model organisms are the ascidian species Ciona intestinalis and Phallusia mammillata. Ascidian embryos are characterised by a small number of cells, stereotypic cell cleavage plans and early cell fate specifications.
I use this model species to study asymmetric cell divisions occurring in animal cells at the onset of gastrulation.
