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.

Postdoc: in vitro gene expression, synthetic gene circuits and synthetic cell system.

Past lab members: Zekun Deng, Ruoqi Tang, Nadezda Monina, Jonghyeon Shin, Jerome Chalmeau, Filippo Caschera

Summary of Interests
Experimental biological physics and synthetic biology. In vitro gene expression, development of quantitative cell-free transcription/translation systems, biophysics of a synthetic cell system.
