I am studying how the catalytic activity of the ribosome is modulated by the nascent peptide which is passing through the ribosomal exit tunnel. The fine tuning of the interactions between the nascent protein and specific elements of the ribosomes is an important way to regulate expression of various genes.

I use molecular biology, genetic, and biochemical techniques to study several aspects of the ribosome: how it makes proteins, how its catalytic activities are regulated, how it can regulate gene expression, and how it is one of the main targets for antibiotics.

I am interested in studying the ketolide resistance mechanisms in bacteria, which will facilitate the development of more potent antibiotics.
