Research Interests

  • Bacterial chromosome biology, pathogenicity and antibiotic resistance mechanisms
  • High-throughput analysis of DNA binding events
  • Single molecule analysis

Work in David’s laboratory is focused on understanding the biology of bacterial chromosomes. Consequently, he is interested in a broad range of biological processes that directly require the interaction of DNA with other cellular machinery. His current research interests include understanding how i) gene regulation is managed on a chromosome-wide scale ii) pathogens control the production of toxins and iii) molecular pathways to multiple antibiotic resistance.

Scientific Inspiration

Lots of other scientists inspire me, for many different reasons.
