Biography

Research

My research interests revolve around the use of computer modeling to understand the structure and thermodynamics of biological molecules. In particular, I am most interested in understanding the biology and physics of lipid-protein interactions. These interactions underlie a fantastic array of biological processes, including cell-signaling by GPCRs and some immune reactions, specifically the action of antimicrobial peptides.
