Research Interests

I would like to apply for Bio5 membership. I feel it is a significant force for the good on campus, and hope to help out in any way I can. My research interests relate to the theoretical chemistry and biophysics of complex systems. Current areas of funded research include the study of protein dynamics in enzymatic reactions, quantum tunneling in enzymatic reactions, modeling of the cardiac thin filament with application to disease mechanism, and the study of the properties of micelles created from green surfactants. I am chair elect of the biological physics division of the American Physical Society, a Fellow of the APS and the AAAS.
