Department
  • Department of Biology
Research & Teaching Interests My research program uses molecular genetic and classical microbial genetics to study signal transduction pathways in marine and freshwater cyanobacteria. I focus on gene expression in cyanobacteria, and how this gene expression gives the organism an adaptive advantage.

Research & Teaching Interests

My lab aims to understand the mechanisms that maintain healthy protein folding environment in the cell, and how they fail in neurodegenerative diseases and aging. We use genetic and live imaging approaches in a genetically tractable organism, C. elegans, as discovery tools, and apply the findings to mammalian systems.
