The main focus of our research is to study the relationship between protein sequence, structure, folding, dynamics and function. We study this by integrating computational methods with experimental studies, to understand how the ability of proteins to change their shape help modulate, or indeed determines, their function. Our research is highly interdisciplinary bridging from basic aspects of biophysics and statistical mechanics to protein chemistry, biochemistry, cell biology and genetics.
My group is highly international and cross-disciplinary with most students having an additional supervisor with an eperimental background. Thus, my group is part of both the Protein Biology Group and the Structural Biology and NMR Laboratory.
