Research: 

Research area: experimental biophysics at nanoscale. We investigate how structure, dynamics, and interactions with binding partners define the function of a protein. The goal is to use this information for protein engineering and design of therapeutic compounds. We use a multidisciplinary approach, which includes advanced solution NMR and optical spectroscopy, molecular modeling, and basic biochemistry.
