Research interests:

My primary interest lies in characterising protein protein dynamics and ensembles and relating them to biological function. With this in mind I find developing NMR methods to study biological systems particularly exciting. During my PhD I have focused on methods to relate 13C chemical shifts to side-chain confirmations. This has been an exciting project allowing us to obtain structural information for challenging systems from some of the most readily available NMR parameters.
