Research Interests

There is a need to integrate targeted model-based studies of organisms and pathways with more comprehensive treatments of life's diversity. I have conducted analyses on a diverse variety of organisms. My laboratory team aspires to develop and implement biotechnological and bioinformatics workflows to allow for integrative modeling approaches that draw from multiple lines of evidence.
