My research is on membrane protein structure, dynamics, and function with a focus on membrane proteins involved in bacterial pathogenesis. I teach CHEM4411 and CHEM4421, the Biological Chemistry Laboratory courses at UVa. With my colleagues, Carol Price and Cameron Mura, I have developed a year long inquiry- and research-based biochemistry laboratory. We have created BioLEd to share and enable faculty to more easily develop their undergraduate biochemistry laboratories and research.
