Assistant professor who studies the functional evolution of proteins that interact with the ribosome, and that are involved in antibiotic resistance and response to stress.
The focus of our research is the evolution of protein function and structure. We’re interested in how evolutionary analyses can be combined with experimental research to reconstruct functional evolution of proteins, and to generate testable hypotheses about unknown aspects of protein function.
