Welcome to Asfa!

There, she worked on how cell sizes evolve in early zebrafish development and how sizes of dynamic cell organelles such as the mitotic spindle and centrosome scale during reductive cell divisions.

She joined the Benton lab in December 2021, where she will work at the interface of developmental biology and neuroscience to understand neuronal connection specificity in the Drosophila olfactory system.
