Research Interests

I'm interested in biochemical and biophysical properties of Holliday junction resolvases. I'm expressing and purifying a tetrameric resolvase, and using atomic force microscopy (AFM) to learn about how this and the GEN resolvase recognize and bind to Holliday junctions. The AFM work is being done under the supervision of Dr. Dorothy Erie in the UNC Department of Chemistry.
