Research/Areas of Interest:

My research is focusing on defining the roles for specific enzymes in the ubiquitin pathway in cell division, cell migration, and the epithelial to mesenchymal transition in ocular tissues. I am using cell based as well as cell free assays to identify mechanisms by which ubiquitination can protect substrates from proteasomal degradation.
