I am currently a Project Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory with interests in Synthetic biology, Chemical Biology, and Natural Product Chemistry. My research has focused on understanding mechanistic and structural features of type I modular polyketide synthases and exploiting that knowledge for producing high-value chemicals in Escherichia coli, yeast and Streptomyces from renewable carbon sources.
