Research Interests

My laboratory applies a wide variety of in vitro (eg microcalorimetry, light scattering and optical spectroscopy) in combination with in silico (eg molecular modeling, molecular dynamics and virtual screening) biophysical methods to study the basic mechanisms driving protein-ligand interactions in the context of cellular processes pertinent to human health and disease.
