    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse Overview
    I am broadly interested in how the intrinsic, chemical properties and features of proteins bias them toward specific structures, particularly the amyloid state implicated in many neurodegenerative disorders. My work integrates approaches and perspectives from the fields of biophysics and chemical biology to dissect the determinants of folding and misfolding in proteins linked to human diseases like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's. Understanding what makes proteins susceptible or resistant to misfolding will inform strategies for targeted intervention.
