Background

I completed my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, graduating in May 2011. My undergraduate research training focused on the prediction of flexibility in proteins for the purpose of docking predictions in Julie Mitchell's lab. My current research is funded by the Wellcome Trust.


Computational Studies of MuSK

The current focus of my study is to examine the dimerisation events of the transmembrane helix of Muscle-Specific Kinase (MuSK) both in bilayers and in micelles.
