research overview

  • My research focuses on gaining insights into how photosynthetic microbes, specifically cyanobacteria, can be efficiently and economically harnessed as a platform for renewable resource generation. I am interested in determining how genome content and replication impact cyanobacterial physiology, and in designing synthetic biology tools that can be introduced into these microbes to create finely tuned genetic circuits
