I have interests in studying complex biological systems employing fundamental principles of chemical and physical sciences. Currently, I am working on a project to develop new generations of red fluorescent proteins (RFPs) with better photo-physical properties using a directed evolution approach. Fluorescent proteins are characterized with various non-fluorescent or dark states that form the basis of several localization-based super-resolution techniques. I am also working to unravel the dynamics and molecular origin of these dark states.
