“Broadly, I have an interest in studying enzymology and structural biology to answer questions related to immune and metabolism diseases such as cancer. I think that advancing our understanding of such diseases requires structure-function studies of large protein families, such as GPCRS, to be driven by bioinformatics paired with fundamental biochemistry. A particular question I’m curious about is how the structure of such enzymes contribute to the big-picture of cellular dynamics? More specifically, how does regulation of enzymes change their structural dynamics and how does this fit into the big-picture phenomena of disease?”
