About

I am particularly interested in the quantitative characterization and understanding of multicellular growth regulation in development, homeostasis and in cancer. My research focus primarily on epithelial growth regulation in a number of different models: in vitro cell layers, cysts, cancer spheroids, xenopatient derived organoids, endothelial tissues, zebrafish epidermis and mouse embryo. I trained as a theoretical physicist but during my postdocs I've also learned basic wet biology techniques, live microscopy and quantitative image analysis
