The ability of cells to adapt and make fate choices in response to intrinsic and extrinsic cues is a fundamental question in biology that has deeply fascinated me. My research interests are decoding the regulatory mechanisms underlying cell fate decision and lineage specification in hematopoietic stem cells and multipotent progenitor populations. My laboratory uses genetic mouse models, omics approaches (e.g., single cell analysis, bulk sequencing, secretome analysis, etc.), multi-color flow cytometry, and various cellular and molecular techniques as primary tools. The ultimate goal of my research is modulating lineage output for therapeutic purposes in disease and aging contexts.
