Research Interest:

My current research project is bioengineering high performance microbial strains to produce biosurfactants. I have solid foundation and broad experience in the area of industrial fermentation and biomolecular engineering, especially protein and metabolic pathway engineering. I am interested in the model and design of biological systems for achieving functional purposes such as the production of valuable chemicals and proteins or the creation of biosynthetic control networks. Throughout the design process, I am interested in utilizing novel analytical methodology and genomic technology to enable a structured and controlled approach for design optimization and implementation.
