About me

I am currently an EMBO Postdoctoral Fellow, working on a collaborative project between the groups of Dipti Nayak (Department of Molecular and Cell Biology) and Daniel Stolper (Department of Earth and Planetary Science) at the University of California, Berkeley, since 2022. I study anaerobic microbes using molecular genetics, metabolic modeling, and high-resolution stable isotope analysis.

In my PhD I worked with Itay Halevy at the Weizmann Institute of Science, where I developed theoretical tools to study methane biogeochemistry which elucidated the relations between microbes that produce and consume methane and the isotopic signals that they leave behind.
