Visiting Associate Professor, Chemical and Systems Biology
Bio PhD degree in Physiology (University of Sao Paulo) and postdoc in Biochemistry (Stanford University). The main focus of my research is to understand the role of mitochondria as intracellular node (not just the powerhouse of the cell) and their impact on life/death decision.
Professor of Chemical and Systems Biology and of Biochemistry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab has two main goals: to understand the regulation of mitosis and to understand the systems-level logic of simple signaling circuits. We often make use of Xenopus laevis oocytes, eggs, and cell-free extracts for both sorts of study. We also carry out single-cell fluorescence imaging studies on mammalian cell lines. Our experimental work is complemented by computational and theoretical studies aimed at understanding the design principles and recurring themes of regulatory circuits.
