Associate Professor

My laboratory studies heterochromatin formation and genome dynamics in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe.  Specific aspects on which we have focused in recent years are sumoylation, chromatin boundary formation, and theoretical modeling of heterochromatin formation. Locally, we collaborate with Physicists at NBI (Kim Sneppen, Ala Trusina, Lene Oddershede) and with the group of Karen Skriver in the Department of BIology.  Our current international collaborators include Thomas Schalch (University of Geneva), Ron Hay (University of Dundee), and Hisao Masai (Tokyo Metropolitant Institute of Medical Science).
