Research Interest

The adipocyte life cycle involves a complex and highly orchestrated program of gene expression. However, in vivo, detailed mechanisms underlying the molecular regulation are incompletely misunderstood. My major research interest relies on studying novel nutrient-sensing genes and whether they have an impact on adipose tissue heterogeneity.
