I am a chemist by training. In my research, I use the concepts, tools, and language of chemistry to understand biology. My major research interests focus on the connection between protein structure and protein function. My research training is in multidimensional biomolecular NMR spectroscopy but we also use other spectroscopies and biophysical techniques as necessary to solve our research problems. As Associate Dean, I don't maintain an active research program. However, to learn more about my former research projects, follow the Research links on this page.
I also don't teach anymore as Associate Dean. In my former life as a Professor, I taught General Chemistry and Biochemistry courses to undergraduates at FSU. I also taught graduate level courses in Physical Biochemistry and NMR Spectroscopy. More information can be found by following the Teaching link to the right.
