Throughout my career, I have explored methane metabolism - a set of unique biochemical conversions that shapes global climate, balances the carbon cycle and provides endless possibilities for sustainable bio-catalysis. My current research interests lie in these interconnected areas: 1. Describe the environmental distribution of methane metabolism, a core biological function that controls methane emission and thus global climate, using a system-wide perspective; 2. Improve our understanding of subcellular organization of the microbial metabolic network; 3. Develop microbial catalysts for conversion of flared/vented methane into green chemicals.
