The focus of my research is to discover and explore the principles that govern the folding and interaction of proteins. These physical processes are what allow proteins to carry out a wide range of tasks in cells, such as catalyzing biochemical reactions. A major part of my research is to develop models and method for protein simulation by using the tools of statistical mechanics and computational physics. I am also interested in the biophysical basis for protein evolution and how ‘misfolding’ and aggregation of proteins can lead to disease.
