Research Interests


Our group is a single molecule biophysics lab. We are affiliated with the Department of Physics and the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis. Our research interests focus on elucidating biological mechanisms at the molecular level using single molecule fluorescence imaging techniques. Current biological mechanisms of interest are gene expression and control mechanisms, where the kinetics and pathways of single gene regulator proteins and their interactions with DNA are investigated in vitro and in vivo, cell division control protein dynamics, flagella transport protein dynamics, and photo-characterization of photosynthesis proteins - phycobilisomes.  To extract quantitative information from the frequently convoluted images of the molecules, we explore and develop novel analytical methods.
