M.Sc. graduate specializing in medical science, translational cancer research, cell biology, and DNA damage repair.
My research interests are in the physiology of bacteria subjected to stress. The focus of my recent research has been the structure and function of regulated transport systems and ion channels involved in cellular homeostasis. These transporters and channels respond to specific signals by a change in activity that either corrects the imposed stress or protects the cell during exposure to the stress. Our systems biology interests are in the interplay of different enzymes systems and transporters
