Research Interests

My research is mainly focused on the transcriptional landscape of homeostasis framework for bacteria behavior. Specifically, one of my projects is on searching for anticipatory regulation of bacteria at the transcriptional level, by mining RNA-seq and microarray data sets and quantifying fitness of bacterial cells under different stress conditions. In my other project, we are collaborating with labs of Dr. Ray Trievel and Dr. Aaron Goldstrohm, to search for targets and understand the interaction of Nocturnin, a gene has been implicated in lipid metabolism.
