Nutrient availability fluctuations are a common ecological challenge for bacteria and I study the physiological tactics they have evolved to cope with this challenge. I am using the model organism Vibrio natriegens to examine how storage compound metabolism during nutrient fluctuations influences the ability of individual cells to grow when nutrients return to steady-state.
