Research summary
Studying disordered protein regions and their role in photoreceptor gene regulation

Many protein regions do not adopt a fixed secondary structure and thus are labelled “intrinsically disordered”. I study the role of these intrinsically disordered protein regions in gene regulation using the retina as a model system.
