Research Areas : Biophysics and Ultrafast spectroscopy, Structure function relation in biopolymers
Research and Development :
Area of Expertise Research and Development activities & Significant recent contributions
Biophysics and Ultrafast Spectroscopy Structural dynamics of biopolymers like DNA and protein are critical for their optimal functionality. We investigate molecular level intricacy of such dynamical fluctuations and their severity upon perturbation by fluorescence based ultrafast spectroscopic techniques.
