Biosynthesis of natural products in bacteria

Complex small molecules…astonish chemists for the same reason that organs such as the eye intrigued Darwin: their incredible complexity makes us wonder how they came to be.” ~Jon Clardy, Harvard University

Teaching through Research

In 2016, I wrote a series of blog posts (one, two and three) about my research, my students and the learning and practice of undergraduate research. This is one of my summer 2016 students talking about our work.

In 2017, my NSF-RUI proposal was funded! Read about it here. My 2017 summer students Vera and Kelly are in the photos below:

My lab this academic year has eight students! And two newbies will stay for the summer, while Vera travels to work with a collaborator for the summer.
