The Big Picture

I'm developing new computational tools to predict protein-protein interactions

Protein-protein interactions are ubiquitous throughout biological processes. Understanding their function or malfunction in the immune system, signaling and metabolic pathways may lead to the design of better therapeutics for a host of diseases. However, proteins are large and have complex energy landscapes relative to our computational ability to study them. My research thus involves developing new computational methods and software tools to accelerate the prediction of protein-protein interactions.
