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.


Research interests

  1. Metabolic engineering
  2. Synthetic biology
  3. Natural Products/Biofuels
  4. Biochemical/Bioprocess engineering
