I am currently a junior group leader (SNF Ambizione fellow) in the Institute of Integrative Biology at ETH Zurich. As of January 2023 I will be assistant professor at Rutgers University in the Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine and Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. I was previously a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, and before that I did my Ph.D. at Rutgers University in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and Center for Quantitative Biology (formerly the BioMaPS Institute for Quantitative Biology).

I am broadly interested in quantitative and systems biology, but my group's research primarily focuses on understanding the interplay between evolutionary processes at different biological scales of length and time in microbes. To this end we combine evolutionary biology with systems biology, using quantitative laboratory experiments as well as mathematical and computational approaches. Please explore the links above to read more about my research interests, current group members, and other activities.

I am currently recruiting bachelor's and master's students for rotation or thesis projects, so please contact me if you are interested. Experimental, theoretical, and computational projects are all available.
