About

In my last role, I was a Scientific Associate at DESRES in the Chemistry group. I utilized Anton, the DESRES chemical modeling supercomputer, to simulate protein dynamics and ligand binding for drug discovery. I analyzed patterns in binding pockets across proteins and develop tools to explore chemical space for new drug lead small molecules. I wrote software to pipeline these investigations, as well as contributed to internal and external packages for science informatics.

Previously, I was an Organism Designer at Ginkgo Bioworks, I worked on using Ginkgo's automated platform to design microorganisms for the production of fine chemicals. During my time there, the company grew from 17 to 105 people. I graduated Harvard University with a BA in Chemical and Physical Biology. My thesis research was on discovering biosynthetic gene clusters of natural products in Streptomyces. My previous research experiences include studies into the relationship between protein activity and stability, the regulatory networks in yeast, and computational immunology.
