Research Interests

My research focuses on characterizing genome-wide epigenetic change associated with aging in tissues and progenitor cell populations. Aging is associated with altered function and differentiation potential, however the basis of this change is not understood. Working with mouse and human tissues, we are characterizing changes to DNA methylation and heterochromatin domains associated with chronological aging and models of induced aging.
