Research in Microbial Engineering

My research goals convolve fundamental molecular biology and microbial engineering. I build novel biological systems in order to elucidate biological design principles, which is useful for understanding natural biology (e.g., gene expression, adaptive evolution) and for learning how to engineer biology for purpose-driven applications (e.g., drug synthesis, controlled biogeochemistry). Broadly speaking, this research is enabled by advances in synthetic and systems biology. In particular, I am interested in building synthetic metabolic pathways and artificial gene networks for 1) optimizing the production of valuable chemicals and 2) learning how to begin to design entire genomes.
