Research interests
During early Drosophila development, cis-regulatory elements (CREs) are essential in establishing proper cellular-specific transcriptomic networks and chromatin plays a key role in this process. CREs are mainly enriched for two histone modifications: the repressive mark H3K27me3 or the active mark H3K27ac. During my PhD, I aim to unravel the role of these two histone modifications in establishing cellular identities via cis-regulatory elements during early development by regulating specific transcriptional programs in each cell of the Drosophila embryo.
