I am a postdoctoral researcher in Structural Bioinformatics and Computational Biochemistry Unit in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Oxford. My research focuses on the use of molecular dynamics simulations to investigate signal transduction mechanisms in bacterial chemotaxis, especially through the  study of the molecular structure and function of bacterial chemosensory arrays. My work is jointly advised by Professor Mark Sansom and Dr. Phill Stansfeld and funded by the BBSRC. Before coming to Oxford, I held a postdoctoral position with Professor Zan Luthey-Schulten in the Department of Chemistry and the NSF Center for the Physics of Living Cells at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). In December 2016, I received my Ph. D. in Physics from UIUC under the guidance of Professor Klaus Schulten at the NIH Center for Biomolecular Modeling and Bioinformatics.

Below are listed selected publications and presentations associated with my research. Contact me.
