We use genome-scale screens and molecular cell biology approaches in model organisms and mammalian cells to study how proteins are localized to cellular membranes, and how defects in this process results in neurodegeneration and cancer.

Research Interests: Vesicle trafficking, lipid transport, yeast genetics, functional genomics, and mammalian cell biology.
