Dipti Nayak

We are delighted to announce the arrival of Dipti Nayak, who joins MCB this July as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Genetics, Genomics & Development. 

Dr. Nayak studies methanogenic and methanotrophic archaea, the primary producers and consumers of methane, respectively. Her work at the intersection of physiology and evolution to understand the fundamental and distinctive biology of these organisms is key to designing optimized solutions for managing the effects of methane emissions.
