My research interests focus on fundamental aspects of protein-ligand binding interactions. Current projects where these interests apply include studies on cooperative antibody-antigen binding interactions, the development of portable immunoassays for metal ions, and the biochemistry and enzymology of bacterial growth at the expense of insoluble inorganic substrates.
