I am a computational biologist with a focused interest in the development of modern statistical tools for comparative molecular dynamic simulation applied to the function and evolution of proteins and their interactions with other molecules in the cell. I am also broadly interested in the evolution of complex and stochastic biophysical process, across all scales, from the molecular to the ecological.

RIT scientists model how coronavirus attaches itself to human cells
RIT scientists have uncovered new information about the way coronavirus and several of its variants attach to human cells. The researchers examined how coronaviruses use their spike proteins to attach themselves to the host cells they are attacking.
