Expertise and Research Interests

My laboratory uses X-ray crystallography, combined with biophysical, biochemical and cellular techniques to probe the structure and function of large macromolecular machines. We are interested in a variety of biological problems, which include the mechanisms and regulation of nucleocytoplasmic transport, the delivery of viral DNA into living cells, and the structure and regulation of multi-subunit ATP synthases. Our goal is to use rigorous chemical and physical methodologies to study medically-relevant problems that help decipher the most fundamental mechanisms of life and contribute to improve human health.
