Research interests

In collaboration with Griselda Hernãndez and David LeMaster at the Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health, Albany, NY, my students and I use molecular dynamics calculations, quantum calculations, and NMR data to investigate the structure and dynamics of proteins. I am interested in using Mathematica in Physical Chemistry courses, and in the integration of molecular modeling into all areas of the chemistry curriculum.
