Research Interests

Mechanistic Enzymology.  My research seeks to better understand the detailed chemical  mechanisms that enzymes use.  In particular I am interested in pyridoxal phosphate dependent enzymes as well as oxidoreductases.

Methods used to gain insight into these enzymes include:
1)   steady state kinetics
2)   pH rate profiles
3)   kinetic isotope effects
4)   site-directed mutagenesis

Other skills involved in these studies include:
1)   overexpression of proteins
2)   protein purification
3)   basic molecular biology techniques
