    Title: Assistant Professor
    Office: MSB 507 Phone: 3129967899
    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    Tissues across the human body are maintained under homeostatic conditions by multipotent stem cells residing in them. Perturbation of these adult stem cells often results in the accumulation of aberrant cell types leading to diseases. Understanding the molecular mechanisms regulating these stem cells is crucial to development of therapeutic interventions to ensure pathological tissues return to homeostatic conditions. Primarily, we aim to characterize the states and fates of pulmonary and gastrointestinal cells.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 5

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Preferred majors include biology and engineering. We are looking to hire students interested in either computational/bioinformatics or wet-lab.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    Bioinformatics student:
    Perform data analysis with guidance from PI.

    Assist postdocs and technicians in the lab with experiments.
