Biography

Members of my research group and I have been investigating new approaches to antibacterial therapy and to biofuel production that are inspired by the unique metabolites and physiology of Streptomyces bacteria. A hallmark of my program has been the synergistic application of experimental methods from synthetic organic chemistry, molecular microbiology and biochemistry. Thematically, my research has been organized around potential solutions to challenges in human health and in energy.
