I’m a third year graduate student in Dr. Range lab at Auburn University. I’m interested in the cell fate speciation and related gene regulatory networks during early embryonic development. Specifically, I apply different methods to find and prove the genes that contribute to the early construction of anterior neuroectoderm and endomesoderm in sea urchins, and how they work with canonical/non-canonical Wnt signaling pathways.


My primary projects include:

  1. The tyrosine-protein kinase transmembrane receptor (Ror) controls the anterior-posterior axis during Strongylocentrotus purpuratus early embryonic development.

  2. The endomesoderm gene regulatory networks during the development of Lytechinus variegatus embryos.
