My general interest is in employing biological structures and processes in engineered systems to enable the production of industrial chemicals by environmentally sustainable methods. My current project involves developing and characterizing a system of proteins that could be used to produce molecular hydrogen in bacteria. I’m also interested in physics and engineering applications related to membrane proteins, and single-molecule DNA sequencing technologies.

Research interests

My general interest is in employing biological structures and processes in engineered systems to enable the production of industrial chemicals by environmentally sustainable methods. My current project involves developing and characterizing a system of proteins that could be used to produce molecular hydrogen in bacteria. I’m also interested in physics and engineering applications related to membrane proteins, and single-molecule DNA sequencing technologies.
