Red cells have differentiated to endodermal fate (Sox17). The graph visualizes a minimal mathematical model for this cell fate decision.
I am a postdoc in the Warmflash lab at Rice University, where I in part operate as a PI with my own team, by virtue of the Society in Science – Branco Weiss fellowship.
My research takes a quantitative approach to developmental biology, using human embryonic stem cells as an experimental model.
In the broadest sense I am interested in the mechanisms underlying spatial patterning and tissue morphogenesis.
