    My group is interested in the mechanisms of morphogenesis that shape the early central nervous system. Using zebrafish as a developmental model, we image the movements of many hundreds of cells using time-lapse micoscopy. Applying methods of image analysis was are able to trace the movements that take place during gastrulation and neurulation to tranform the CNS into its 3D form.
