I am interested in spectroscopy and how these powerful techniques can be used to obtain molecular information. My curiosity about chemistry and biology has led me to wondering how these complex reactions occurring in our bodies and all around us actually work. My research allows me to combine physical chemistry with the study of biological processes through studying enzyme dynamics. My focus is on the heat flow in enzyme catalysis and its effects on enzyme turnover, where I am currently working to elucidate the dynamics of dihydrofolate reductase.
In my little free time, I enjoy disc golf, hockey, and martial arts.
