Research interests: Structural biology of enzymes and protein-protein interactions. Projects include 1) protein engineering of enzymes involved in a xylose assimilation (XXX) pathway 2) structure- and combinatorial-based drug design targetting apicomplexan parasitic infection and 3) characterizing the structure and function of WD-repeat domains in protein-protein interaction. Our primary research tool is x-ray crystallography but we usually complement this with biochemical and genetic experiments.
