Research Statement

Our research interests are in the areas of structural biology and biophysics. We are interested in characterizing the function of biologically active macromolecules using a technology-inclusive approach that combines structural studies - primarily using solution NMR - with studies of the biophysical properties of the molecules to elucidate the origins of biological activity. Group projects involve studies of the structure of RNA and DNA oligomers, proteins and their complexes; protein and nucleic acid dynamics; and the energetics and kinetics of biomolecular interactions.
