I am a postdoctoral scientist with a focus on epithelial cell-cell adhesion
relevant to normal development and certain types of cancer. To identify
components and mechanisms regulating cell adhesion – in particular the

line of work impinges on many aspects of epithelial cells including their
polarity, cytoskeletal status and the trafficking of adhesion proteins.
Currently, I am working at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in the United
