* If something looks really bad, remember that you will or have seen worse.
* When in doubt, assume things will get worse before they get better.
* When given a choice, take the most strenuous path.
My research is in the areas of energetics, stability, subunit association and other factors that define the process by which a disordered protein chain attains its unique three-dimensional structure.
By making use of ancient computational methods such as CHARMM, AMBER, and DEDUCTIVE REASONING
I plan to add a factor of predictability to the three-dimensional structure of proteins in the near future. The current research investigates the energetics leading to the formation of homotypic
helical bundles such as the Cartilage Oligomeric Matrix Protein (COMP).
