Research Interests

Silica polypeptide composite particles consisting of an inorganic silica core and an organic polypeptide shell can be used as model systems for studying biological and physical particle interactions. The polypeptide conformational transitions can be used to study the dynamics of vesicles and virus-like particles to better understand how proteins undergo their transitions. Jamming studies of the polypeptide composite particles can be conducted to determine how responsive polymer effect the jamming phase transition.
