I work in the Koffas group 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 PhD projects involve developing synthetic biology tools to engineer the microbial synthesis of natural products and fuel molecules in E. coli.
