We are a research group at Berkeley Lab
in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus. We use biophysics and
synthetic biology to engineer and explore the nanoscale interface
between living microbes and inorganic materials. We are particularly
interested in the basic mechanisms underlying charge transfer and
assembly of materials at this living/non-living interface.
Ultimately, our research has applications in carbon capture and
sequestration, bio-solar energy generation, and hierarchical assembly
Our lab is part of the Molecular Foundry
a Nanoscience User Facility which provides outside researchers
(“Users”) with the instrumentation, in-house expertise and
multidisciplinary environment necessary to pursue research that can
benefit from or contribute to nanoscience. If you think your research
could benefit from our expertise, please contact us!
