Research Interests

I’m generally interested in proteases and their biological function in various systems. Currently I am trying to identify novel substrates for two human proteases, BACE1 and BACE2. I am also interested in developing and improving proteomic methods that allow characterization of proteolytic activity and protease substrate identification.
