In my PhD project, I am investigating epigenetic memory mechanisms using epigenome engineering and synthetic biology. I am developing a high-throughput assay that profiles the chromatin state and the transcriptional output of regulatory elements, to answer how epigenetic memory arises and how it is maintained.
