I am a graduate student in the Molecular Microbiology program at Tufts University in Abraham L Sonenshein's laboratory. Our lab explores the intersection between metabolism and gene regulation in Bacillus subtilis. My work focuses on the aconitase protein, which is both a metabolic enzyme and an RNA-binding protein that contributes to the regulation of sporulation.
