There are three reasons why we do research:

  • One is the personal enjoyment of discovery,
  • Wanting to contribute something to humanity and to human knowledge, and
  • To maximize our human potential.

Friends, colleagues, collaborators and visitors,

Thank you for your interest in this website. I welcome you to a brief introduction to the content of this website.

It was with some trepidation that I decided to have a personal website that would condense in one place my professional activities as well as some of my extra-curricular projects and activities.

The sections of this site point to the different areas of my interests both professional and personal:

  • the Crystal Edges Blog on themes broadly related to crystallography,
  • “Notes of a Protein Crystallographer,” essays centered on molecular structure ,
  • my research on efficiency-based drug discovery and the related Atlas CBS modeling application,
  • science communications in the form of books and dramas,
  • news on my activities, and finally
  • my lecturing and consulting services.

For further information, please contact me via either email address in the contact information below.  I would be more than pleased to establish a dialog with you from which I do hope that we can both benefit

Thank you again for your interest and I do look forward to hearing from you.
