Research Interests

I am interested in the phenomenon of regeneration that can be observed in different animal species.

Also I am fascinated by the new technologies of genetic engineering. SO I thought to combine regeneration and genome editing by joining Professor Aziz Aboobaker lab, where we will examine the potential of applying an inducible CRISPR cas9 system in the relatively new animal model emerging in regeneration studies "Parhyale hawaensis" in order to understand the biological processes and pathways underlaying the regeneration process.
