My research in a nutshell

Understanding and controlling the mechanisms of redox enzymes.

Current Research Interests

Mammalian NO synthases, large multidomain enzymes involved in the regulation of blood flow/pressure, immune response and nerve signalling.

Heme-dependent monooxygenases, powerful catalysts able to insert oxygen atoms specifically into otherwise unreactive molecules.

Multiheme electron transfer proteins, used to build protein-based electron transfer wires for use in enzyme electrochemistry and in the construction of novel electroactive enzymes.
