I am a developmental cell biologist and a teacher. I want to explain connections across multiple, wide-ranging scales - e.g., from molecular, to nanomechanical, to tissue organization, to whole-body morphology evolution!
In my doctoral research, I used single-cell deletion and other microsurgical interventions to find out that cell contacts shift the plane of a specific cell's asymmetric division, preventing its daughter cell from developing excess neurosensory organs. I also compiled a description of the Ilyanassa embryo's spatiotemporal pattern of cell division up to the 84-cell stage, and compared it with the patterns in other kinds of snail embryo.
