I am a computational scientist. I have previous experience in the following research areas:
1) Molecular simulation of proteins and protein-like polymers
2) Applying machine learning models to identify bacterial genomic biomarkers of disease activity
3) Modeling quenching in materials for solar energy conversion
4) Developing coarse-grained models for protein recognition
Outside of the lab I work to improve the integrity and reproducibility of research involving human subjects with fatal and chronic diseases.
As a former 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.
