My main research interests lie in computational chemistry. Currently, I am focused on the uses of machine learning in protein design problems. Besides, I participate in a project aiming to provide deeper insights into patterns of structural diversity of influenza virus hemagglutinin.
Karen Juliana Gonzalez Restrepo
Graduate Student, Bioinformatics
I am a Ph.D. student in bioinformatics at the University of Georgia. My main focus is the study of viral surface proteins from a multi-state approach. Specifically, I am interested in understanding how the stability of these proteins contribute to infectivity and how this relationship can be used for vaccine development.
