Research interests:

My research involves combining approaches from light microscopy, microbial genetics, and data science to get a clear picture of the biological processes inside bacterial cells. Microbes provide a balance of robustness and complexity not typically found in abiotic physical systems and large biological systems. I’m currently focused on how bacteria make and keep their specific shapes to thrive in diverse contexts.
