Brief Description of Research Interest :
I am interested in post-translational modification of proteins by ubiquitylation and its impact on human diseases. I have worked with mono-ubiquitination of proteins related to cardio-vascular diseases and innate immune signaling pathways. Currently I am working on ubiquitin ligases and their contributions to certain rare neurological disorders. I am also interested in deciphering the function of soluble and membrane embedded proteins/enzymes in glycogen metabolism and its impact on human diseases. My diverse training includes protein biochemistry (protein purification- both soluble and membrane bound, NMR for protein-lipid and protein-protein interaction, X ray crystallography), enzyme based assays, kinetic studies for protein-ligand interaction (such as SPR) as well as recent cell biology training (in vivo cell culture based assays and mice study) that I am getting at UT Southwestern.
