Research Interests: My current research has been focused on identifying the evolutionary origin and developmental importance of an extracellular matrix triad—a sulfilimine-crosslinked collagen IV scaffold, peroxidasin, and hypohalous acids—within tissues from Human to Hydra. My future research will revolve around tissue regeneration from the context of the basement membrane toolkit and studying the role of microRNAs within the anemone, Nematostella, which can regenerate completely into two animals when severed completely in half.
