Research Interests

My ongoing research projects are connected by the desire to understand how aspects of protein sequence and structure translate into functional diversity. All living processes come down to molecular interactions and knowledge of how proteins interact is key to better understanding our world and leveraging that understanding for future innovation, whether that is optimizing plants for increased yield and stress tolerance for climate reliance or finding new targets for antibiotics. <br><br>Undergraduate and graduate students in my lab will have projects related to these broad questions involving a variety of approaches, such as generation and characterization of transgenic and T-DNA knock-out plants, protein bioinformatics, enzyme kinetics, molecular cloning and analysis of protein interactions and modifications.
