Awards & Honors

I started my studies in Physics and Astronomy at Northern Arizona University as an undergraduate. My interests shifted from the vast scale of the universe, to the tiny scale of protein structure. My introduction to protein science came during a summer at University of Chicago studying the interaction of myosin and actin proteins. After learning that I’m horrible at wielding pipettes, I dived full throttle into computational methods for studying protein structure and dynamics with a NIH sponsored Post-Baccalaureate program (PREP) in John Karanicolas’ lab at University of Kansas. After graduating with my Ph.D from University of Pennsylvania (advisor Roland Dunbrack) in Molecular Biophysics, I joined Prescient Design to lend expertise in antibody sequence and structure.
