Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

An essential step towards understanding the biology and development of an organism is identifying the molecular fingerprint of its cell types, while to understand its evolution, cell type inventories must be obtained and compared across taxa. My scientific interests lie in understanding which are the cell types present during distinct stages of the sea urchin life cycle and unraveling their evolutionary history. To identify the cell types, we use a combination of traditional molecular biology (gene perturbation, gene expression visualization methods), omics (RNA-seq, ATAC-seq and scRNA-seq) and different microscopy-based approaches (SEM, TEM, SBEM, Confocal microscopy), while to understand their evolution we perform cross-species comparison of their molecular signature and the gene interactions taken place within them as depicted in gene regulatory networks.
