Current Research

The chromosome of Haloferax volcanii, a salt-loving archaeal species, has several DNA replication origins which can be deleted without any deleterious effects on the cell. We are investigating how DNA replication initiates at these origins and in the absence of origins as well as the regulation of this process.

Past Research

My PhD focused on understanding how the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma brucei repairs a unique form of DNA damage called interstrand crosslinks to gain a better understanding of how novel anti-trypanosomal agents function in the parasite.
