Research Interest

Research in my laboratory is aimed at understanding fundamental relationships between peptidomimetic sequence and their three dimensional structures. In parallel, we are exploring new functions for peptidomimetics with an emphasis on molecular recognition applications.

Personal Statement

I am eager to serve the American Peptide Society as a Councilor. I bring many years of experience as a peptide and peptidomimetic chemist, I have been a regular attendee at APS meetings, and I have published work from our laboratory in Biopolymers: Peptide Science. I am a committed educator and scholar at a predominantly undergraduate institution, Santa Clara University. In the role of Councilor, I intend to highlight my perspective on the value of peptide science to educate future leaders in the field. To this end, I am interested in advancing mentoring and professional development opportunities for young scientists. Further, I will prioritize building leadership in the society that is reflective of the diversity of practitioners in the field.
