Research Interests:

  • Energy Function development
  • Antibody Modeling
  • Loop Modeling


I have always been interested in how proteins fold. My PhD work focused on determining how single-pass membrane proteins assemble and the contributions of non-canonical hydrogen bonds to that process. In my postdoc, I have focused on the development of new score functions in Rosetta to better elucidate the contributions of partial covalent interactions. Currently I am working to develop algorithms to better determine how the HCDR3 loop of antibodies fold, thereby allowing for improved computational screening of antibody/antigen interactions.
