- Research Assistant Professor
PhD, Biochemistry, George Mason University (2017)
As a Research Assistant Professor, I am responsible both for conducting research as well as writing grants to support our research program and mentoring students at various
My current research focuses on understanding protein-protein interaction topology to better design inhibitors of protein-protein interactions. Within this context, I am involved in projects studying protein complexes relevant to cancer, wound-healing, and Alzheimer's pathologies.
