Why I like Protein Biochemistry
I enjoy topics relating to life and understanding its function of the cell at a molecular and cellular level.

Research Goals
To explore the enzymology of Shewanella oneidensis cytochrome c nitrite reductase: a new mechanistic study which will explain the dissimilatory nitrite reduction to ammonia and bacterial anaerobic respiration.
