Research interests

Investigating the major biological pathways of key reproductive hormones that control gonadal development, the completion of meiosis, and the production of functional gametes essential for male and female fertility. Major projects focus on the roles of follicle-stimulating hormone and androgens in both male and female reproductive development using unique genetic models.
