My research focuses on understanding cell division at the molecular level. Failure to properly segregate the chromosomes during cell division causes aneuploidy a hallmark of many cancers and recent work has implicated cytokinetic failures contributing to numerous syndromes, premature ageing and cataracts. We use biochemical, genetic and live imaging approaches in multiple model systems to address fundamental questions in cell division.
