Work and Research

My interest lies in the evolution of eukaryotic genomes and what molecular mechanisms contribute to different lifestyles for adaptation.At the heart of this process are biosynthetic enzymes that work in an assembly fashion to generate chemical diversity. Using a combination of computational biology, molecular biology and biochemistry, I aim to elucidate the mode of chemical communication by applying an integrated omics approach. In parallel, I am using biophysics approaches to understand the role of novel DNA binding proteins in the process of DNA packaging in marine microbial eukaryotes.
