Research Summary

My research interests are primarily concerned with the development and use of theoretical biophysical and bioinformatics methodology to study the structural and energetic origins of protein-protein and protein-peptide interactions. Specific applications include exploration of origins of specificity of antibody-antigen and MHC-peptide interactions with long term goals of antibody improvement and HIV-1 vaccine development.
