Research Interests

The molecules used to build cells, and much of human infrastructure, are synthesized by the chemical reactions of metabolism. In understanding metabolism better, we open the door to new ways of curing disease and environmentally friendly chemistry. Work in our lab focuses on defining how metabolic reactions function in the context of the cellular system in order to elucidate the so-called design principles of metabolic function. To do so, we take an interdisciplinary approach, combining biochemistry, biophysics, and systems biology, with an eye towards building synthetic biology tools.
