My work focuses on our understanding of how cells and organisms maintain proteostasis in changing environments, which remains a poorly understood area of cell biology. Over the years, this has led me to study the cellular stress response in health and disease with an emphasis on the role of tandem repeats, intrinsically disordered domains and biomolecular phase separation. My goal is to translate fundamental biological insights into novel therapeutic approaches for human disease and tools for synthetic biology.
