Area of Current Research Interests
Understanding the role of non-covalent interactions in recognition processes involving proteins. Specifically looking at the role of conformational dynamics and conformational transitions in the recognition of phosphoinositols, the assembly of cystatins, in prion proteins and in ligand binding and ligand recognition of mobile protein domains.
