Our research efforts focus on applying physics-based computational tools to the modeling of small molecules, proteins and nucleic acids; all to aid in the fight against disease.
Our teaching efforts focus on applying novel evidence-based interactive methods at all course levels, on integrating computational methods into upper-level physics courses and in increasing the relevance of introductory physics to pre-medical students; all while maintaining the quantitative rigor expected of physics courses.
To use computational tools to develop a deeper understanding of the molecular basis of disease and to aid in the development of new therapeutics. To improve teaching in physics so that all levels of students have a greater ability to use physics and it's tools in their disciplines.
All of our projects are highly collaborative with other scientists across scientific disciplines.
