Expertise

Studies in my laboratory are focused on understanding the following: -how the protein controls the rate and efficiency of electron transfer during light energy transduction. -how the protein controls the route of electron transfer through the protein and across the membrane. -interactions of this protein with the proteins and lipids that form the membrane environment. -the relationship between structure and the thermal stability of the protein, including the use of mutagenesis to engineer reaction centres with enhanced thermal stability.
