Current Projects: 

Current projects include investigating actin organization in the apical pole of hair cells, specifically the coupling between stereocilia and the cuticular plate actin networks. With the ultimate goal of advancing our understanding of the cuticular plate structure and its dynamic properties, our focus has been on a single actin-linked dynamic protein that localizes to the cuticular plate.

Research Interests: 
Hair cell biology and mechanotransduction, super-resolution light, electron microscopy.
