Research Interests:

Genetics and epigenetic aspects of early human development. ‘omics studies of normal and abnormal placental and fetal growth. Clinical biomarkers of birth outcomes. Sex differences, polymorphisms, DNA methylation, non-coding RNA.

Genetics and epigenetics related to fetal development and obstetrical complications of pregnancy such as fetal growth restriction, preterm birth, and birth defects. We use genomic and bioinformatic techniques/tools to understand pathological processes related to placenta that affect the fetus and newborn.
