My research is focused on the development of the mammalian neocortex, which is the control centre of our behavior, thought and intellectual abilities. I am particularly interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying cortical progenitor differentiation during cortical development. Decoding these mechanisms is crucial to understanding:
1) How our brains undergo healthy development and what happens to the brain in psychiatric disorders.
2) How we could develop novel strategies to regenerate damaged nervous system.
