Research Interests

I am interested in the mechanisms by which microbes interact with their chemical environment by synthesizing or transforming chemical stimuli. Microbial synthesis of natural products is an evolutionary response to chemical stimuli, and I study the evolution and regulation of the enzymatic machinery within the pathway. Conversely, microbial transformation of natural products to reduce toxicity or produce novel products is the alternate mechanism by which microbes remodel their chemical surroundings.

Consulting Interests

Natural products Vitamins and supplements Enzymology
