Research Interests

My lab uses cellular and biochemical approaches to gain a broader understanding of genetic instability. Normally, genome maintenance pathways promote faithful DNA replication and repair, but misregulation such processes can cause genetic instability and cancer. Ongoing research projects in my lab include the metabolism of quadruplex (G4) DNA and the function of DNA repair in the context of repetitive DNA sequences. Students at all levels (undergraduate though doctorate) contribute to the current research output from my lab, and inquiries into open student research positions are welcome.​
