During my Ph.D. with Cathy Royer and Christian Roumestand at the Center for Structural Biology in Montpellier (France), I used a combination of solution NMR, fluorescence and calorimetric techniques to study the effects of hydrostatic pressure on protein stability and folding.
Thanks to a Fulbright scholarship, I spent several months in Angel E. Garcia group learning about enhanced molecular dynamics simulations and coarse-graining techniques. I then joined the lab of Ad Bax at the National Institutes of Health (Bethesda, MD) as a postdoctoral fellow and used state-of-the-art solution NMR techniques to characterize the structural properties of a variety of peptides, globular proteins and intrinsically disordered proteins.
I finally joined the Department of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Molecular Biology at ISU as an Assistant Professor in June 2016.
