Research interests

In most species the endosperm is a polyploid tissue inheriting two maternal genomes and one paternal genome. Maternal and paternal factors regulate the development of embryo and endosperm and epigenetic regulation of them plays a crucial role during early stages of seed development. I am currently working on the epigenetic regulation of endosperm development, in particular understanding the mechanisms leading to parent-of-origin specific gene expression.
