About

I have been working on the development of computational methods to gain insight into the processes associated with protein-ligand and protein-protein binding and applications of these methods in chemical biology and drug discovery. Current research activities focus on addressing serious shortcomings of present computational approaches for modeling protein-ligand and protein-protein association: protein flexibility, entropic contributions, solvation effects, and quantification of binding.
