I work in the field of microbiology and synthetic biology, with a focus on technology development to facilitate strain engineering and microbial functional genomics studies. My background was in molecular genetics, and I use both traditional genetics approaches, and also cutting edge CRISPR-Cas9, Cre-lox recombineering techniques, to genetically engineer microbes from single gene to whole genome levels, in both aerobic and anaerobic organisms. I am passionate about how we could engineering microbes for useful outcomes, especially for new intervention in the prevention and treatment of environmental problems, and human health.
