My work focuses on regulatory networks used by halophilic archaea to regulate growth during extreme oxidative stress.
I focus on four different species of haloarchaea to describe how the biological machinery involved in the adaptation to iron starvation is conserved.
My project involves statistical modeling of microbial growth and gene regulatory networks using methods such as Gaussian Processes.
I am interested in understanding how central metabolic pathways are regulated in hypersaline archaea.
In my work, I focus on how archaeal cells grow and divide.
I study the function of histone proteins in archaea to investigate the evolution of epigenetics.
Associate in Research
I conduct experiments relevant across lab projects, with a current focus on the regulation of metabolism.
