Research interests

A large fraction of proteins and protein regions are classified as "intrinsically disordered". These regions have historically been hard to study, but play key roles in a wide variety of cellular functions. Furthermore, these regions are strongly implicated in many diseases. In the Holehouse lab, we integrate a range of computational approaches (simulations, bioinformatics, systems biology) with experimental data to uncover how intrinsically disordered regions mediate cellular function, with a particular interest in biological phase separation.
