Research Interest
Our research group focuses and experts at studying macromolecular assemblies in realistic solution conditions. Our lab is developing pioneering solution X-ray scattering-based technology to address and resolve these challenges.  By applying state-of-the-art data analysis, integrated with simulations, theory, and various algorithms (maximum entropy optimization, for example), we have been resolving the structures and intermolecular interactions in complex, weakly ordered, and dynamic self-assembling biological structures. Our research spans virus self-assembly, the assembly of cytoskeletal filamentous proteins and their associated proteins, and lipid membranes.
