Specialty: Biomolecular Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy / Structural Biology.

Research Interests: Applying the latest NMR techniques to explore proteins encoded by mutant forms of RAS genes to ultimately create new and effective therapies for RAS-related cancers. Structure-function relationship of macromolecules (proteins/RNA/DNA) with the goal of understanding their interaction and response to various ligands. Also smaller molecules: peptides, natural products, ligands, etc.

Where: The Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research, NCI/NIH, RAS initiative.

Before: Ph.D. graduate research in Ad Bax's group, while enrolled in the Chemical-Physics Program at Univ. of Maryland College Park, then postdoctoral research in Marius Clore's group at NIH, then NMRFAM (Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison) in Prof. John Markley's group.
