His research centres on predicting and analysing biomolecular complexes, for application to drug discovery, drug design and protein function prediction. In his science outreach work, he has developed new visual methods for exploring molecular and cellular structure. He writes a monthly column at the RCSB Protein Data Bank that presents molecular structure and function for general audiences, and has written three general-interest books on molecular biology, cell biology and bionanotechnology. He has also collaborated with science museums, film makers, educators and popular authors to create educational and outreach materials.
