My current research interests are in the area of regenerative biology. In particular, I am seeking to unravel the fundamental problem of how adult cells can be reprogrammed to less differentiated states during regeneration in certain regeneration-competent species, such as salamanders. I also seek to understand how regenerative capacity changes with ageing in different species.

My research aims to find explanations to these problems, as this is essential both to gaining an understanding of why some species can achieve adult regeneration and while others cannot, and to ultimately raising the possibility of promoting regeneration in non-regenerative organisms, including humans.
