My research interests currently focus on protein structure and dynamics. I use the site-directed spin labeling (SDSL) EPR spectroscopy technique to study the functional dynamics of soluble and membrane proteins essential to bacterial viability.

Research Interests

LptA-Mediated Transport of LPS is an R01 award from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences to study how LptA transports LPS. Genetic screenings, laser light scattering analyses, EPR spectroscopy studies, and isothermal titration calorimetry measurements are used to provide detailed insights into the mechanisms of LPS transport across the periplasm of Gram-negative bacteria.

National Biomedical EPR Center is a P41 award from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. The mission of the EPR Center is to serve the community of EPR spectroscopists by development of advanced EPR instrumentation and new EPR methodology.
