Research Interests:

I use super-resolution fluorescence microscopy techniques, including Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) microscopy, to study the localization of GalNAc-Ts in the Golgi compartment and to try and identify a potential localization pattern or a possible hierarchy of GalNAc-Ts that might spatially regulate O-glycosylation. In addition, I am currently developing a Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) based biosensor that would allow the sensing of spatio-temporal initiation and branching of O-glycosylation in cells, and will be used to understand the regulation of the activity of GalNAc-Ts in cells.
