We are interested in understanding the formation of biofilms through quantitatively analyzing and understanding motility, communication, and other inter-cellular interactions in microbial systems to decipher motivation. Our lab is inherently interdisciplinary in scope; we use tools and techniques from applied microbiology, soft-matter physics, and microfluidics. In addition, we are interested in both fundamental and applied research, as well as their transfer to biotechnology applications.
