Assistant Professor
Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

Our research aims to elucidate the mechanism of membrane transporters, flippases, and polymerases involved in bacterial cell wall biosynthesis, unravel how their function influences bacterial adaptation, discover inhibitory molecules for the development of new antimicrobials, and repurpose the activity of these proteins for applications in the synthesis of glycoconjugates. Our lab uses a multidisciplinary approach, combing techniques such as single-particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), x-ray crystallography, live cell assays, and various buichemical/biophysical methods to study the function and molecular mechanism of membrane proteins.
