Research Interests

My research interest is the tripartite multidrug efflux system AcrAB-TolC of E.coli. AcrB is the very promiscuous, proton-substrate antiporter efflux pump that sits in the inner membrane. AcrB functions with AcrA, a periplasmic protein and TolC, an outer membrane protein to expel antibiotic, chemicals, toxin etc. My focus is on mapping the antibiotic pathway through genetic, biochemical and structural means.
