I work in the Koffas Lab at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Before we moved to RPI at February 2011, I have studied at the State University of New York at Buffalo] for two and a half years. My research interests include creating novel microbial platforms for producing flavonoids and fatty acids through a combination of metabolic engineering and synthetic biology approach.


Research interests

  1. Metabolic engineering
  2. Synthetic biology
  3. Natural Products/Biofuels
  4. Biochemical/Bioprocess engineering
