Research Interests

I apply a combination of computational and experimental approaches in order to understand how cells sense and respond to their environment, with foci ranging from the molecular details of perception to the evolutionary basis for existing regulatory architectures. In the process, I make heavy use of microbial population genetics and systems biology tools, bioinformatic analysis, and molecular and atomistic-level simulations. Some of my current projects include:
