Professor Temple Burling is a biophysicist interested in computational problems in macromolecular crystallography, the structure of proteins, the physics of biological systems, and the history of science. He came to Carthage in 2002 from the Department of Biochemistry at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, where he served as an assistant professor and as the director of the X-ray Crystallography Core Facility. Before his work at Cornell, he was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale University, where he examined problems in computational crystallography, protein dynamics, and high-resolution macromolecular structure determination by multi-wavelength anomalous dispersion.
His teaching and research interests focus on the overlap of physics and biology. He has co-authored several articles that have appeared in science publications such as Acta Cryst and Science.
Prof. Burling has a Ph.D. and M.S. in biophysics from the University of Rochester Medical School, an M.S. in physics from Iowa State University, and a B.A. in physics from Grinnell College.
