About Me

Garrett Meek

I am a computational scientist, educator, and advocate for patients with inflammatory bowel disease.  I have research experience in the following research areas:

1)  Molecular simulation of biomimetic oligomers

2)  Modeling quenching in materials for solar energy conversion

3)  Developing coarse-grained models for protein recognition

4) Applying machine learning to identify bacterial genomic biomarkers of disease activity

Outside of the lab I work to improve the integrity and reproducibility of research involving human subjects with fatal and chronic diseases.

As an educator, I am passionate about improving opportunities for populations that are under-represented in science.

In my free time I serve as a member of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s Patient Education Advisory Board.
