My primary research interest lies in unraveling the molecular mechanism of metastasis-associated PRL-3 phosphatase using biochemical approaches, supplemented with relevant tumor mouse models. The goal of this on-going study is to identify potential intervention points in PRL-3-driven cancer progression, as well as new therapeutic approaches in targeting this oncogene.

My projects in the Cohen lab focus on roles for microRNAs in the Drosophila CNS. Broadly speaking, my interests are in understanding brain development, and how development influences CNS functions. I chose the fly model as its available genetic tools makes it possible to thoroughly investigate a neurobiological question in one system, from a molecular developmental phenotype to subsequent physiological and behavioral characterization. The fly is becoming a surprisingly good model for several types of human nervous system disorders, and a final interest is to use fly models to better understand human CNS diseases. My PhD dissertation work at Harvard Medical School examined roles for potassium channels in left-right patterning and eye development, carried out in the lab of Dr. Michael Levin.
