Thesis Research: My thesis project focuses on two questions. What are the metabolic pathways used to produce novel, highly branched isoprenoid molecules in freshwater diatoms, and what physiological conditions control their production? For this research I will be utilizing transcriptomics along with growth condition experiments focusing on temperature.
