Research focus:

My research focuses on the regulation and engineering of interconnected cellular networks which govern the behavior of many subcellular systems, such as the protein secretion systems, the spore surface display system, and the formation of outer membrane vesicles. A combination of interdisciplinary approaches, encompassing synthetic biology, engineering design, comparative genomics, proteomics, biochemistry, molecular biology, and chemical biology, are used to investigate the interactions between components of these subcellular systems, discover the system-level mechanisms regulating these networks, and reprogram them for novel industrial and medical applications.
