Mechanical Engineering in Bioengineering

My general research interests lie in elucidating the inner-workings of proteins, enzymes and biological motors, using instrumentation that combines optical tweezers, single molecule fluorescence and pulsed spectroscopy. This research will be directed towards developing a molecular level description of the motions associated with structural, mechanical, dynamic and energetic changes of these biological systems. Through these emerging technologies, significant advances in our ability to measure receptor/ligand interactions, the inner-workings of biological motors and interactions between multi-unit protein complexes will be achieved, thus providing a deeper understanding of these biological systems.
