Michael's research interests lie in how bacteria respond to stresses such as iron limitation, antibiotics, and barriers to motility. The systems used by bacteria to overcome these stresses are required for growth during infection and are potential targets for therapy. He investigates the function of proteins involved in stress response through a combination of structure determination, genetic phenotypes, and biochemical assays.
