In our research, we are primarily interested in
  1. force fields for efficiently simulating chemical reactions in complex media,
  2. control of water by gas vesicle proteins for buoyance in unicellular organisms,
  3. active ion transport by membrane proteins for energy storage and homeostasis.
Our primary tools are statistical thermodynamics and solid state NMR.
