I am a computational physical chemist currently working in the field of accelerated materials discovery for nanomedical applications, particularly in the area of polymeric drug delivery agents. My past research includes work in developing enhanced sampling algorithms for molecular dynamics simulations of protein folding.

As an educator, I have developed curricula and taught courses in science literacy at Columbia University, Bard College, Bard Prison Initiative, and the YWCA of the City of New York. My current and past mentoring and outreach activities include work with The New York Academy of Sciences, Girls Who Code, and the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science.
