The focus of our research is the protein biogenesis and how stress-related factors modulate it. Protein biogenesis in general comprises various processes, i.e., translation, protein folding, each of which responds differently to external stress stimuli. Using systems biology approaches we seek to understand the interplay between these processes in fine-tuning the protein pattern and proteins’ abundance under osmotic stress conditions.

Postdoctoral Research fellow with experience in Genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics
Work in my laboratory is focussed on microbial physiology - the study of how bacteria and other microorganisms work. Although rooted in the tradition of bacterial growth and intermediary metabolism, microbial physiology now embraces molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, and indeed any discipline that can shed light on bacterial function. Much of our experimental work is conducted with Escherichia coli, the pre-eminent ‘model’ organism with unrivalled ease of genetic and physiological
I am a postdoc in the lab of Rick Lewis working on the biophysical characterization of protein-protein complexes involved in central carbon metabolism.
