Who We AreOur research group uses a combination of interdisciplinary approaches including synthetic biology, systems biology, microbiology, synthetic chemistry, and nanoengineering to address the key global challenge involving antimicrobial resistance.

To this end, we are also interested in investigating the non-genetic mechanisms responsible for antimicrobial tolerance/resistance to devise strategies that can one day prevent evolution of drug resistance. Using synthetic biology tools we are also interested in designing, constructing and engineering modular synthetic genetic devices based on less-explored naturally occurring mechanisms, for both understanding fundamentally how nature works as well as built devices for potential biotechnological applications.What Your Key Responsibilities Will Be
