Evolution by natural selection is a fundamental property of life. I want to understand, predict and control how microbes evolve and adapt to their environment.
Ecology and Evolution, Stanford University
I am interested in how biotic interactions in microbial communities affect adaption. I currently study a simple community that consists of yeast S.cerevisiae and alga C.reinhardtii. I observe how these two species are adapting to living with each other.
Biotechnology, Belarusian State Technical University, Belarus
I measure how the effects of mutations on fitness depend on the genetic background and on the environment in yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Physics, National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan
I am interested in population genetics and quantitative biology. My research question is: How does the proteome allocation changes in bacterium E.coli as it adapts?
California State Polytechnic University Pomona
I am interested in developing and testing models that predict the fitness effects of new mutations. I am also pursuing an improved lineage tracking system for long-term evolution experiments.
Molecular Biology, University of California San Diego
I study how the presence of a gene-drive element in the genome affects mutation rates and long-term evolution in yeast S. cerevisiae.
