Overview: I am a graduate student at the University of Virginia School of Medicine in the Biomedical Sciences program. My Ph.D. track is in Biophysics. Broadly I’m interested in applying cryo-electron microscopy to determine structures to high resolution and biophysical assays to understand biological systems.

Background: In previous research I used solution NMR along with circular dichroism, fluorecence anisotropy and mass spectrometry to look at structural components of the Type 3 Secretion System from bacteria such as B. pseudomallei. I have research experience in tissue cell culture working with the human pathogen C. trachomatis.

Where do I see myself in 5 years? Hopefully done with my Ph.D. and heading to do a post-doc abroad.
