Current Research

Our lab does quantitative developmental biology across length and time scales to understand how cells and tissues regulate size and shape.

We generate the molecular tools that enable us to measure and manipulate the physical and chemical parameters at play during organ and organelle growth.


We collaborate closely with physicists as well as computer scientists, both on the experimental and theoretical sides of our questions, so that together, we can get further mechanistic insight into how biological systems grow across scales. If this sounds appealing and you are interested in: collaborating, doing an internship or applying for PhD/Postdoc positions, feel free to contact Rita
