PhD Candidate in Computational Biology Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science
I am a 5th year student in the Joint CMU/University of Pittsburgh PhD Program in Computational Biology. Outside of academia, I enjoy classical music, learning about history (e.g. late imperial Rome, 20th century Europe, 19th century America) and philosophy (e.g. theory of mind, consciousness, and connections to neuroscience).
Currently, I develop of novel simulation algorithms for biochemical reaction-diffusion networks as well as black-box optimization methods. Previously I investigated the assembly pathways available to self-assembling viral capsids.
