FIELD OF RESEARCH

I am fascinated by a fundamental question in biology; How is regulation of gene expression as a response to external stimulus achieved? My laboratory is investigating the regulation of ribosomal protein synthesis and RNA polymerase subunit synthesis in diverse prokaryotes. I am particularly interested in the importance of the thermodynamics and kinetics of mRNA folding in translational regulation.
