  • Associate Director of the Program in Chemical Biology
Associate Professor of Biological Chemistry
Expertise: Macromolecular Structure and Function
Research:
We investigate the reaction mechanisms of flavin-dependent enzymes, especially the reactions of O2 and the formation of novel intermediates, using kinetic, spectroscopy, and anything else that helps. Flavoenzymes are constantly being discovered in all areas of biology, making them inviting drug targets, models for detailed studies of structure-function relationships and enzyme evolution. And surprisingly, despite decades of intense enzymology, novel intermediates continue to be discovered
