Associate Professor
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology


Structure-functional studies of DNA recombination, replication and repair proteins.

Research Interests

Our lab studies the mechanism of protein function at the atomic resolution level utilizing X-ray crystallography and biochemical approaches. The main focus is recombination mediator proteins (RMPs), which are essential for genome stability and DNA repair in all organisms.
