NIH Post-Doc Northwestern University
Ph.D. University of Pittsburgh
My research interests lie at the interface of chemistry and biology. I seek insight into biological processes and macromolecular structure by employing probes at the molecular level. My modus operandi consists primarily of using the tools of chemistry to understand biochemical processes.
