Research interest: Zebrafish endocrinology and metabolism

PhD in the laboratory of Uwe Strähle, Strasbourg, on identification of target genes of the Nodal signalling pathway and analysis of differential gene expression in the midline of the zebrafish embryo. Postdoc on regulation and function of peripheral circadian clocks in the zebrafish in the laboratory of Nicholas Foulkes, Tübingen. Current research interest: endocrine and metabolic timing of cell proliferation.
