Field: experimental biological physics, cell-free synthetic biology.
PhD: movement of the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes, a model of cell motility. A biomimetic system was used to understand actin based motility in living cells. The study included quantitative measurements and theoretical model.
Postdoc: in vitro gene expression, synthetic gene circuits and artificial cell system.
