I am interested in the mechanisms of sister chromatid cohesion and chromosome segregation. We use yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as the model organism and methods ranging from biochemistry to electron microscopy to obtain insights into these interconnected processes which lie at the core of cell division.
