I am a new faculty member teaching microbiology and general biology at a primarily undergraduate institution. I am working culture, identify, and characterize unknown microorganisms associated with Drosophila species flies, both prokaryotic and eukaryotic. In particular, I am characterizing entomopathogenic bacteria that have the potential to be employed as biological controls of insect pests.
I also have strong research interests in eukaryotic cell division, specifically how the spindle formation is regulated during the course of the cell division cycle by cyclin-dependent kinases. I use the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as an experimental model in this regard. Related to this area of research, I am also very interested in developing tools to facilitate the genetic manipulation of hemiascomycete yeasts.
