I trained in X-ray crystallography, biochemistry, and computation. With this foundation, I contributed to structural biochemistry for the biology for DNA repair, reactive oxygen control, the immune response, and other stress responses for >20 years. Our NCI-funded papers report robust structural and biophysical measurements to advance understanding of cellular stress responses that are evolutionarily conserved and important in preserving genome stability and preventing diseases in humans. My methods, results, and concepts have stood the test of time: they are often used and cited >30,000 total times.
