Research Description:

We are broadly interested in the chemical diversity of microbes, the biology underlying these chemistries, and the evolution and emergence of new metabolic pathways and enzymes. Working at the interface of chemistry and biology, we integrate approaches from multiple disciplines to discover new microbial natural products, characterize their bioactivity, and decipher the genetics and biochemistry of their synthesis.
