      Carl Wivagg


        Ye-Jin (Jenna) Eun

        Helen Hay Whitney Postdoctoral Fellow

        I developed new methods for live-cell imaging of haloarchaea and studied the cell division and growth mechanism of Halobacterium salinarum.

        Mike Dion

        Lab Manager / tech wizard

        As the most experienced guy around, Mike makes the magic happen.

          Patrick Stoddard

          Graduate Student (joint with Murray lab)

            Laura Bagamery

            Graduate Student (joint with Murray lab)

              Saman Hussain

              Graduate Student

              I study how bacterial cells are able to organize the synthesis of their cell walls to grow in defined and reproducible shapes.

                Zach Barry

                Graduate Student (joint with Bathe lab)

                  Sean Wilson

                  Graduate Student

                  I am interested in understanding aspects of bacterial cell wall hydrolases, essential enzymes that break down the wall to allow growth while maintaining its integrity.

                  Yingjie Sun

                  Post doctoral fellow

                  I study how bacteria change regulate their rate of growth at the single-molecule and single-cell levels .

                  Devon Stork

                  Graduate Student (joint with Church Lab)

                  I use tools to develop new fluorescent tools for imaging.

                  Matthew Holmes

                  Graduate Student

                  I study the dynamics of bacterial cytokinesis. I enjoy putting labels on proteins and then watching what they do

                  Jenny Zheng

                  Graduate Student

                  I study cell shape formation by looking at archaea grow and divide.
