Research Interests

I am interested in understanding the genetic mechanisms controlling gene expression by which bacteria adapt and survive in hostile environments. Desiccation, radiation, hot and cold temperatures, presence of oxidizing agents and antibiotics are just a few of the hostile environments to which bacteria have evolved survival mechanisms.
