Faculty Research Interests:

My research program is focused on understanding and utilizing the chemistry of nucleic acids. DNA plays an integral role in basic bioprocesses and its chemical and physical properties can be exploited to develop selective therapeutics, biosensors and even robust catalysts. I am looking for energetic and hard working students who want to delve into the science of DNA.
