My research investigates how phosphatases regulate cell signaling pathways, with a specific interest in M-Phase of meiosis and mitosis. Protein phosphorylation impacts all cellular processes and pathways. M-Phase entry and exit are characterized via massive changes in protein phosphorylation, with precise regulation essential for accurate meiosis and mitosis. Importantly, errors in M-Phase can lead to trisomy, infertility, and miscarriage (meiosis) and cancer (mitosis). My research focuses on how phosphatases regulate M-Phase, and therefore, begin to understand the foundational biology of important cellular processes for health and disease.
