Research interests

My research centers on characterizing the complex interplay between hydration and conformation of proteins, peptides, and polymers through the use of enhanced sampling simulations and novel data analysis frameworks. My eventual goal is to use the understanding we gain from this research to help inform the discovery, design, and delivery of drugs and biotherapeutics.
