Research Interests:
  • in vivo metabolomics 
  • molecular genetics of the circadian clock in the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa
  • NMR metabolomics data analysis and visualization tool development

We have recently developed a way to monitor abundant metabolites in microorganisms in vivo and in real time using NMR. Using this method I ask questions like:

  • which metabolites does an organism consume or accumulate? When do they do this, and why?
  • how do these patterns change with environmental or genetic perturbations?
  • what can we discover about the underlying dynamics of metabolism using these data to drive detailed kinetic models? (in collaboration with Yue Wu, IOB)
