My research uses a wide variety of mathematical methods from applied dynamical systems, numerical analysis, and biostatistics to understand critical issues in biochemistry, nutritional science, and physiology that have important public health consequences.
The majority of my past research has been focused on the structures of viral capsids and understanding nucleic acid-protein interactions in HIV-1. I am currently developing biochemical models and novel mathematical techniques for a broader range of human health topics. This includes depression, arsenic detoxification, gender differences in one-carbon metabolism, and personalized medicine.
