Research Focus

The production of biofuels from cellulosic biomass holds promise as a source of clean renewable energy that can reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. Attaining this goal will require engineered microorganisms capable of economical conversion of cellulosic biomass into biofuels. Effective microbe design relies on understanding the relevant metabolic pathways and their regulation, including how the integrated networks function as a whole. My research program integrates systems-level analyses, especially metabolomics, with computational modeling and genetic engineering to advance understanding of metabolism in biofuel producing microorganisms, particularly clostridium species such as C. acetobutylicum, C. cellulolyticum and C. thermocellum. The main research topics in my laboratory are: 1) Systems-level analysis of metabolic regulation in biofuel producing microorganisms and 2) Engineering symbiotic consortia for biofuel production.
