Sam Research summary

My lab studies biophysical principles of bacterial cell wall biosynthesis, with a particular focus on the mechanistic principles of bacterial cell division and elongation. We work primarily with the Gram-positive model organism Bacillus subtilis. To tackle these questions my lab develops novel experimental methods based on single molecule & super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, microfabrication and microfluidics. I am a strong supporter of open science, and work to ensure that all of the software, methods and resources that my lab develops are freely available and easy to use.
