I am interested in how photosynthetic organisms perceive and respond to environmental signals, particularly light. My research program uses molecular genetic and classical microbial genetics techniques to dissect out and study signal transduction pathways in marine and freshwater cyanobacteria. Current projects in the lab are:
- Elucidating the function of the orfG and lrrA genes in Synechococcus elongatus
- Deciphering the function of three putative extra-cellular matrix protein genes in Trichodesmium erythraeum
