RESEARCH INTERESTS

  • Investigating the biophysics of cytoskeletal hierarchy using optical tweezers, force spectroscopy, and fluorescence microscopy
  • Systems that include molecular motors, proteins, microtubules, actin, and other cytoskeletal components
  • Implications of hierarchical cytoskeletal synergy in vital life processes such as cell division, motility, and muscle contraction
  • Using higher order in vitro systems to model physiologically relevant environments for testing cytoskeletal drugs and effects of mutations/disorders in disease states
