Teaching Interests

  • Biophysical Chemistry

  • Computational Chemistry

One of my main interests is to foster active learning through discovery-guided projects. In the past few semesters, classroom research projects have been designed and introduced in biophysical and physical chemistry courses. These projects are computational and are being carried out using the in-house Blugold Super-Computing Cluster.


Research Interests

My research interest is focused on two broad topics:

a) Redox chemistry and its role in ping-pong enzyme kinetics (funded by Research Corporation for Science Advancement)

b) Malecular Crowding, enzyme catalysis, protein dynamics, and allostery (funded by National Institute of Health)

We use theory, concepts of physical chemistry, and advanced computer simulation methods to explore these questions. In addition, we also collaborate with experimentalists to validate the theoretical findings.
