Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics
We are interested in understanding how molecular and cellular interactions give rise to collective behaviors in microbial communities.
We use synthetic biology, quantitative microscopy, and microfluidics to directly investigate the molecular mechanisms behind how cells communicate across broad spatial and temporal scales. Our goal is to apply these principles to develop new synthetic biology approaches to biomedical problems through microbiome engineering.
