Deputy Director of Functional Genomics

Research Focus

My research interests lie in the use of metabolomics analyses to characterize engineered biosynthetic and metabolic pathways to understand cellular metabolism and its regulation, in vivo. This is directed towards addressing key environmental challenges and engineering robust microbial platforms for producing valuable renewable bioproducts.


  • Understanding how microbes alleviate the burden of accumulated toxic biosynthetic pathway intermediates and products
  • Developing efficient, high-throughput metabolomics sample preparation methods for microbial cultures
  • Developing high-throughput quantitative LC-MS methods for microbial and plant metabolomic analyses
  • Developing high-resolution CE-MS methods for microbial and plant metabolomic analyses
