 Educational Background/Employment:
  • B.A. (2015) Physics, Claremont McKenna College
  • Ph.D. (2021) Pharmaceutical Sciences (Research Focus: Crystallography, Diffuse Scattering, MD Simulation), UC Irvine
  • Employment:
    • 2015-2016 Tutor, Revolution Prep, Santa Monica, CA
    • 2016-2021 Graduate Student and Instructor, UC Irvine, Irvine, CA
    • 2018 Applied Machine Learning Summer Fellow, LANL, Los Alamos, NM
    • 2019 Graduate Student Assistant, LANL, Los Alamos, NM
    • 2020 Virtual Summer Intern, LANL, Los Alamos, NM
    • 2021-present, Post-doctoral Researcher, LANL, Los Alamos, NM

Research Interests:

  • Characterizing the correlated motions which contribute to diffuse (non-Bragg) scattering through Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations of protein crystals
  • Improving the modelling of crystallographic structure and dissorder through MD simulation of protein crystals and Bragg scattering data
