## List of Faculty in the Graduate Group in Applied Mathematics (GGAM)

GGAM comprises faculty members from departments across the campus, including its home, the Department of Mathematics. Below is a brief description of faculty research, links to personal and departmental web pages plus some "Related Courses" which can serve as a general study guideline for students interested in research with a particular faculty member. Students who want a more complete description of a faculty member's research interests are encouraged to contact them.

My research program focus on understanding protein structures. I am interested in characterizing their shapes using mathematical and computational approaches, and to use this information to improve our understanding of their stability. I am also interested in characterizing the subset of sequence space compatible with a protein structure: this is an indirect approach to understanding protein sequence evolution. In parallel, I am involved in the development of new algorithms for predicting the structure of a protein,
based on its sequence. My department web pages are:
