Research interests:
- Knot theory and differential geometry of curves and
surfaces in 3-space.
- Applications of these to the study
of proteins.

Award winning poster
The poster(ps) poster(pdf) titled Automatic
classification of protein structure by using Gauss integrals
was elected as one of the 10 best (out of 500) posters at ISMB2002.
Software
Download GI that calculates
Gauss Integrals for protein backbones.
Download Sieve that
calculates average occurrences of patterns of up to three crossings for
protein backbones.
Download GIT that calculates
Gauss Integrals for protein backbones and returns a Tuned version such that the resulting protein structure descriptors are as independent as possible and such that each descriptor scales as linearly with RMSD as possible.
