Spatiotemporal models of mammalian development: An epigeneticist’s dream or nightmare?
My research group aims to address the fundamental challenge of understanding how multicellular organisms achieve variation despite cells having identical genetic information. The development of a single fertilized egg into a complete mammalian embryo is an especially beautiful embodiment of this problem. During this process, cellular differentiation is defined by the capacity of the cell ensemble

Cellular and environmental mechanisms regulating protein absorption in the vertebrate gut
Intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) are highly polarized and can perform vectorial transport of nutrients using asymmetrically localized membrane proteins and via polarized endocytic and trafficking processes. Using cell biological, forward and reverse genetics, and physiology approaches, we have been investigating mechanisms regulating cell polarization and protein absorption in zebrafish and mice

Eat Like the Animals: what nature teaches us about the science of healthy eating
Animals from cockroaches to baboons in the wild instinctively mix a healthy, balanced diet. Why can’t we? In this lecture I describe my 35-year research journey with colleague David Raubenheimer to discover the answers to this question. Our scientific detective story involves (among other things) a mediaeval woodland in Oxford, biblical African swarms, cannibal Mormons crickets, a new explan
