My current research topics are: 1. Biophysical mechanism driving epithelial cell shape pulsations during drosophila embryo development 2. Cellular adaptation to mechanical stress - role of contractile actomyosin waves in maintaining tissue integrity 3. Role of contractile actomyosin waves in maintaining adherens junction homeostasis in constricting epithelial cells during dorsal closure of drosophila embryo 4.
