Training Group(s):
Computational and Systems Biology
Biomolecular Structure and Biophysics

Active Mentor - currently hosting PULSe students for laboratory rotations and recruiting PULSe students into the laboratory; serves on preliminary exam committees

Current Research Interests:

Protein bioinformatics. We develop and apply bioinformatics tools for protein tertiary structure modeling, protein docking modeling, protein function prediction, structure-modeling for cryo-electron microscopy density maps, virtual drug screening. We design algorithms and apply machine learning methods.
