I’m currently a postdoctoral associate at the NIH Center for Biomolecular Modeling and Bioinformatics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). In December 2016, I received a Ph. D. in physics under the guidance of Klaus Schulten at UIUC. Currently, my work focuses on the use of atomistic molecular dynamics simulations to investigate the structure and function of large, biomolecular complexes. I’m especially interested in the physical mechanisms of biological information processing within bacterial chemotaxis.

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