Research Interests:
We study how organisms use gases (CO, CO2, CH4) in metabolism and in metabolic regulation.

We study how organisms use gases (CO, CO2, CH4) in metabolism and in metabolic regulation, how metals catalyze reactions and how thiol/disulfide redox switches regulate the activity of enzymes, ion channels and transcriptional regulators. We target systems that are important in human health, environmental biology, and biological energy conversion.
