Research Interests

I am interested in the characterisation of bioactive natural products made by microorganisms.
The main aims of my research are:

  • to develop synthetic biology tools for the engineering of fungi
  • to refactor the biosynthesis of terpenoid natural products from fungi
  • to discover bioactive natural products from actinomycete bacteria.
