Areas of expertise I am interested in the regulation programmed cell death in health and disease. My key research areas are apoptosis and autophagy, and I take a functional, cell biological approach to understand changes in cell structure/function during these forms of cell death. My principle expertise is in microscopy, and my group routinely uses a variety of microscopy technique to pursue our aims. Of note, we use live-cell microscopy (fluorescence and transmitted light) to monitor cellular processes by time-lapse imaging.
