Personal Statement

I have been involved in problems of peptide conformation and molecular recognition since graduate school. I have broad experience applying innovative synthetic, biophysical, and genetic approaches to peptide science. The peptide community is a big tent, but has always been a source of support and inspiration for me. I welcome the opportunity to give back.
