Research Summary

Recent advances in DNA sequencing have revealed millions of mutations in humans, many of which have the potential to impact protein structure and function. My research employs mass spectrometry-based proteomics to assess the impact of these mutations on a proteome-wide scale, accelerating variant annotation from years to days.
