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.

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

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

Research Areas
Experimental biological physics and synthetic biology. In vitro gene expression, development of a cell-free transcription/translation molecular programming platform, artificial cell system.
