The Paravastu laboratory specializes in the application of solid-state NMR spectroscopy to detailed structural analysis of peptide, protein, and peptide analog assemblies. The Paravastu laboratory’s research projects are unified by the use of nuclear spin physics and computer modeling to uniquely determine 3-dimensional arrangements of atoms. Paravastu first became interested in molecular-level science and engineering as an undergraduate student at MIT. As a Ph.D. student, he developed a drive to integrate chemical engineering research with modern techniques in physics and physical chemistry. He learned to apply NMR spectroscopy to structural biology as a postdoc at the Laboratory of Chemical Physics at the National Institutes of Health (2004-2007). Paravastu started as an assistant professor in 2008 at Florida State University, where he worked with the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory. He started his current position at Georgia Tech in 2015.
