Assistant Professor of Chemistry; Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; Paul Berg Early Career Professorship in the Eberly College of Science
Developing chemical tools to monitor cellular stresses that influence protein folding in real time. Deciphering how the energy landscapes associated with proper protein folding and function are regulated by the cellular folding environment. Examining how this regulation leads to significant biological consequences.
Microbial biomineralization with a focus on deciphering the molecular mechanisms involved in the formation of minerals by bacteria, the impact of this process on the geochemical cycles of different element (C, P, S, Fe), and the use of microbial biominerals as biosignatures in the rock record and in astrobiological contexts.
