Research Interests

Our work focuses on the processes that guide the development of the brain and craniofacial skeleton and use this insight to expand our understanding of neurodevelopmental and craniofacial disorders. Our goal is to use knowledge gained into the mechanisms underlying these disorders to develop better diagnostic tools, preventive measures, and pathways to intervention.
