Effective simulations can both reduce costs and predict future avenues of research and production. I am an applied computer programmer who creates and tests novel mathematical approaches that extract meaning from complex data sets, and make current simulation models far more efficient.

I am currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Michigan in physical chemistry. My expected graduation date is the summer of 2015. My area of research is using computers to model, simulate, and analyze angstrom-scale solvent interacting with proteins and other biomolecules. I am coadvised by two amazing bosses: 
Charlie Brooks  and  Kevin Kubarych .

When I am not researching science I practice Chinese and ballroom dancing.
