Research Interests

Cells are dynamic structures that must be able to generate and respond to forces.  The ability of cells to generate and respond to forces is mediated by the cytoskeleton and modulated by cytoskeletal associated binding proteins.  My research utilizes in vitro motility assays and single molecule techniques to study:  (A) the mechanical and kinetic modulation of the myosin II motor by the regulatory light chains and (B) the transduction and modulation of cytoskeletal forces via actin and associated actin binding proteins.
