I am presently seeking a position in industry, research institute, or
academia, working in the areas of plant/bacterial biochemistry/molecular
biology.  My experiences are from working with plant and microbial pigment
biochemistry and molecular biology of microbial enzymes.  However, my broad
background allows me to work in multi-disciplinary applications. I have no
preferences toward geographical region, domestic or international.
