Educational Background & Professional Experience

In reverse chronological order:

  • Assistant Professor, Department of Chemistry, Univ of Virginia (Sep-2008 → present)
  • Research Assistant Professor, Department of Chemistry, Univ of Virginia (Jan-2008 → Aug-2008)
  • Sloan/DOE Postdoctoral Fellow in Computational Molecular Biology, Univ of California, San Diego (Oct-2002 → Dec- 2007; with Andy McCammon)
  • Postdoctoral Research Associate in Structural Biology, UCLA (May-2002 → Oct-2002; with David Eisenberg)
  • PhD in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, UCLA (Sep 1996 → May 2002; with David Eisenberg)
  • BS in Chemistry, with Highest Honors, Georgia Institute of Technology (Sep 1992 → Mar-1996; with Loren Williams)

Current Activities

  • I work in the Mura Lab at the University of Virginia. I learned about OpenWetWare from online web searches (Google) and colleagues. I've joined because I would like to learn about OWW, add my group's website, and would also like to contribute in the areas of my training/expertise (crystallography, structural and computational biology, RNA-binding proteins).

Research Interests

  • Structural biology and molecular biophysics of protein/nucleic acid assemblies, particularing those involved in RNA processing
  • Macromolecular crystallography
  • Molecular dynamics simulations and related computational methods
  • Bioinformatics, particularly as related to protein family evolution / gene duplication / symmetric assemblies
