Bio:

I did my Ph.D. in physics, under the direction first of Stanley Deser, and finished under the direction of Donald L.D. Caspar. After graduation, moved to The Scripps Research Institute, to work in the laboratory of Ronald Milligan, and then to Florida State University, back to the laboratory of Donald Caspar. After that, I worked as Technical Director at the New York Structural Biology Center, with David Stokes, David Coburn and Wayne Hendrickson. Now I am working with Nikolaus Grigorieff.
