Credentials: Molecular and Cellular Biology, Neuroscience, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, BA University of Colorado Boulder
Position title: Masters Student
Research Focus: Investigating Clostridium thermocellum's physiology in an effort to increase biofuel production.
Credentials: Doctor of Engineering- Morgan State University
Position title: Postdoc
Research Focus: Build computational models (e.g., genome scale model and proteome allocation model) of different organisms to study metabolic networks that ultimately maximize production of interested byproducts (e.g., biofuel, chemicals) and increase biomass resources utilization.
Credentials: Microbiology, BS, Iowa State University
Position title: Ph.D Student Co-advised by Dr. Betül Kaçar
Research focus: My projects will investigate the adaptive evolution of the bacterial-biofuel organism Z. mobilis through the lens of metabolomics while increasing our understanding of the origins of glycolysis intersectionally through astrobiology.
