Research Interests


  • Genome Function Annotation:
    Combine (i) computational genomic analysis, (ii) 3D structure prediction and computational docking, (iii) machine learning, and (iv) cell-free protein expression to understand domains of unknown function in both model organisms and in uncultured microorganisms from environmental communities.
  • Mercury Chemistry:
    Using quantum mechanics to understand at the molecular scale how mercury interacts with and is transformed by the species it encounters in natural and contaminated environments.
