Research interests

I am interested in bioengineering practical solutions to problems in energy, medicine, food supply, or pollution clean-up. I enjoy my current research -- optimizing butanol production in Clostridium ragsdalei. I would love to explore a microbial detector or cure for human diseases. I am really interested in the idea of BioBrick parts in all applications.
