I am interested in the question of how bacteria obtain their cell shape and size, and how morphology is coupled to other important physiological processes. To that end we are combining approaches from physics and biology. For example, we are using high-resolution microscopy and microfluidics, which is paired with image analysis, computational modeling and complemented by molecular biologly.
