Research in Microbial Engineering

The goal of my research is to develop a microbial platform for the biological production of organic small molecules (e.g., drugs, fuels). This work is broken down into 4 main areas: 1) the design and characterization of genetic parts, 2) the implementation of synthetic metabolic pathways and refactored organelles, 3) the development of genetic control circuits and 4) the computational modeling and simulation of engineered systems, natural systems and the interfaces between the two. Broadly speaking, this research is enabled by recent advances in synthetic and systems biology.
