Academic Interests

My interest in transcription and gene regulation runs as a thread though my research. Currently, I am an Associate Professor in the Chromatin research group at the Dept. for Molecular Medicine, where we focus on chromatin regulation in adipose stem cells. We are also studying transcriptional complexes involved in the regulation of de novo lipogenesis in liver.
