My research interests:
Macromolecular motions and dynamics have fascinated me since the onset of my scientific career. Specifically, I am interested in understanding how the movements of a protein on a rugged free-energy landscape relates to biological function and how the brief excursions that enzymes make from their ground state to minor populated excited states influence molecular function. I also have a strong interest in the development of new NMR methodology to characterise macromolecular motions, interactions, and dynamics.
