Research Interests

We use the model yeasts Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Cryptococcus neoformans to study the molecular processes involved in nutrient metabolism. We are particularly interested in how these organisms sense the need for and availability of specific nutrients with an emphasis on mechanisms that are likely to be conserved in higher eukaryotic organisms.
