Research Interests

Working as a joint student with Eric Greene, I am investigating the interactions between DNA and mismatch repair proteins. Through the use of novel single molecule techniques, I hope to discern both the unique processes by which these proteins locate their target sites, as well as how the various constituents of individual pathways “communicate” with one another. By understanding the nature of these interactions under the restrictions of our experiment, I can then formulate theoretical predictions of similar interactions in the cellular environment.
