 +
 +===== Post Doctoral Research Fellow =====
 +
 +I work for the [[http://www.mcsg.anl.gov/|Midwest Center for Structural Genomics (MCSG)]]. My responsibilities include selecting protein targets for structure determination, monitoring the success of target selection strategies, and providing homology models of relatives of MCSG structures.
 +
 +===== Academic Background =====
 +
 +1985 BSc in Biochemistry at UCL
 +
 +1988 Fellowship of the Institute of Medical Laboratory Science (Virology) at NESCOT while working at the Royal Free Hospital
 +
 +1995 Part-time MSc in Computer Modelling of Molecular and Biological Processes at Birkbeck (Distinction)
 +
 +1999 PhD with Julia Goodfellow at Birkbeck
 +
 +For my PhD I used various computational approaches to model the conformational change in transferrin that accompanies release of iron in response to a reduction in pH.

 +{{:cathteam:transferrin.gif|}}
 +
 +After hypothesizing a mechanism of action I succeeded in simulating a small conformational change using molecular dynamics. This exhibited some of the correct features; in particular there was a hinge axis between the two halfs of the domain and it almost intersected with the crystallographic hinge axis.
 +
 +===== Current Research Interests =====
 +
 +Protein function prediction. I am pursuing an approach to target selection in structural genomics that targets representatives of the functional diversity of protein domain sequences predicted to belong to large structural superfamilies.
