Research Description:

Extremophile Biochemistry and Genomics

Current Research: Organic osmolyte accumulation is a central component of bacterial response to abiotic stress. Identifying and characterizing these organic molecules, key genes involved in biosynthesis/uptake of these organic molecules and identifying metabolites involved in stress perception and signaling is the goal of my research. I use extremophilic bacteria as model organisms. I have worked on UV light and high salinity stress. CO2 stress will be my emphasis. The knowledge gained from these model systems is used to metabolically engineer strains which will be used in translational research for production of important pharmaceutical/biotechnological molecules and bioenergy.
