Research

My research focuses on applying RNA switches, developed elsewhere in the lab, to provide dynamic control of enzymatic pathways. Specifically, I am using those switches to construct feedback control systems, with the goal of producing a predictable output despite variations in reaction conditions. These control systems can then be used in metabolic engineering to change both the transient and equilibrium responses of a pathway.

Past Projects

  • Development of an in vivo screen for synthetic riboswitches.
  • Design and construction of a screening plasmid to measure the PoPS transfer curve of a BioBricks device.
