Current research interests
Application and development of stopped-flow, laser flash photolysis, brownian dynamics and molecular dynamics methods to study electrostatic and hydrodynamic effects in kinetics of molecular association and molecular dynamics.
Investigation of protein-ligand association by stacionary and transient near and far UV CD spectroscopy, in particular to proteins binding analogs of 5'-end of m-RNA.
Past research interests:
Constant-pH molecular dynamics and molecular electrostatics simulations of proteins and protein-ligand systems.
Investigation of kinetics of protein-ligand association by Brownian dynamics simulations.
Investigation of multiple protonation equilibria in proteins using Poisson-Boltzmann model of their aqueous solutions.
Analysis of macromolecular structures and their dynamics in solution by quantitative electro-optics.
Investigation of biopolymer dynamics by T-jump spectroscopy.
Investigation of hydration of biomolecules by ultrasonic velocimetry of their aqueous-alcoholic solutions.
