I am a biologist by training. My research career is focussed on the structure-function relationships of membrane transport systems in Escherichia coli. I am interested in understanding the mechanism of ion and solute transport across the membrane and how this influences bacterial cell survival. My work mainly focusses on the ligand-gated potassium efflux systems which are crucial for cell survival during electrophile exposure and the mechanosensitive channels involved in hypoosmotic stress responses.
