Personal profile

Research interests

We combine x-ray crystallography and biophysics with molecular simulation to study the structure, folding and dynamics of proteins, with a particular focus on the design and engineering of proteins for medical and biotechnological application. Our team is a unique and exciting mix of experimentalists and computational biologists using modeling and simulation to make predictions that can be tested in the lab.

Bioinformatics databases we have developed:

REFOLD

PolyQ

KinetochoreDB

MyTardis

Biography

I completed my PhD in 1994 in the laboratory of Prof Sir Alan Fersht at the University of Cambridge, on the structure determination of protein-DNA and protein-protein complexes. As a postdoc then staff scientist at the MRC Centre Cambridge, I made contributions to the understanding of protein stability, molecular recognition and the action of molecular chaperones. I relocated to Monash University, Australia in 2003 and am currently a group leader in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

 A longer bio is here.
