Scholarly and Creative Work
Daley enjoys the puzzle of piecing together molecular structure using NMR spectroscopy. It was an undergraduate biophysics class that got her really hooked when it was demonstrated that it was possible to apply NMR to large protein molecules. Both her Ph.D. and postdoctoral research used NMR to investigate the relationship between protein structure and function. She has studied various interesting proteins using these techniques, including insect antifreeze and bacterial signaling proteins.
Daley is currently teaching Chemistry and Society. She has also taught DNA, Science, and Technology, General Chemistry lecture and laboratory, and Biophysical Chemistry laboratory.
