Welcome to my homepage. I am a profesor in the department of Bioengineering and Department of Chemical Engineering along with being a member of the Institute of Biosciences and Bioengineering at Rice University. In addition, my research is in the area of metabolic engineering.

My research laboratory is mainly concerned with the development of new concepts and novel ways of altering metabolic routes in Escherichia coli using recombinant DNA technology to improve cellular activities and achieve more advanced production systems. The main focus is on the development of a framework for the systematic analysis of the cellular responses in regulating its metabolic activities upon precise genetic perturbations. Understanding these responses is critical to design organisms and processes for efficient and reliable manufacturing of gene products from recombinant cells.
