Self-organization under stress

From the nanoscale to the macroscale, self-organization is a recurring theme in systems under stress. We seek to bridge the gap between disparate length and time scales of self-organized systems in microbiology.

Microbial condensates

We have shown that nanoscale assemblies, called condensates, promote bacterial adaptation to nutrient stress. We decode the mechanisms underlying condensate formation with a goal to engineer condensates for better planetary and human health.

Chemical biology and nanoscopy

Catching biomolecules in their act is a grand challenge. We develop genetically targeted fluoromodules to achieve the ultimate precision in biological imaging.
