Research interests: The overall theme of my research is based on reaching an understanding of structure-function relationship of proteins, enzymes and their complexes, including those involved in disease (e.g. ALS), via advanced computational and experimental approaches. This encompasses synchrotron radiation, protein crystallography, XAFS, SAXS, SAD phasing, catalysis, structure-based drug discovery, molecular dynamics and computational chemistry.;
