Academic Interests: Our research focuses on the structures and functions of proteins and protein complexes involved in cellular transport, or trafficking. We use a variety of structural, biochemical, and biophysical techniques in order to understand the mechanisms by which cells control their internal transport logistics and ensure key transmembrane protein cargoes are moved to the correct spatial location in a timely fashion.
