Research in my group involves using biophysical, molecular biological and synthetic model approaches to elucidate the structure of transition metal sites in proteins and enzymes, and investigate how these sites function in biology.
We have focused our efforts on nickel biochemistry and redox systems involving S-donor ligands. Systems that are of current interest in my group include proteins involved in nickel trafficking, and several enzymes including hydrogenase, superoxide dismutase and cysteine dioxygenase.
