Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in DNA replication and my research has focused on understanding where this process begins, how it is regulated, the obstacles replication forks can face and how replication forks fuse during termination. Using genetics and biochemistry I am currently investigating aspects of DNA replication in bacteria.
