Research Interests: Cellular Physiology of Bacteria and Environmental Microbiology. Interests include elucidation of biodegradation pathways for organic pollutants, isolation of novel organic pollutant degrading bacteria, microbial genome analysis, bacterial stress response, microbial motility, enzyme kinetics, and in vivo single molecule tracking. I am also interested in microbial ecology, evolution and bioinformatics.
