Research Interests


I first joined the Peters’ lab in 2017 during my third year of undergraduate study at WSU. Through my research experiences with the Peters’ lab, I have become increasingly interested in low potential electron transferring events in bacterial metabolism. As an application of this, I would like to move forward with my academic career by studying bacterial photosynthesis, exploring the interesting electron transferring events involved therein. For the time being, I am working on expressing and purifying a novel ferredoxin from Azotobacter vinelandii that is predicted to donate electrons to nitrogenase.
