I’m a computational biophysicist studying membranes, proteins and dynamics. I’m an assistant professor in Earlham‘s Physics and Astronomy department, and I teach occasional courses in Mathematics and Computer Science. Before this, I was an NIH postdoc in the NHLBI‘s Laboratory of Computational Biology with Rich Pastor and Bernie Brooks. I did my graduate work with Heather Carlson at the University of Michigan and my undergraduate work with Walter Smith at Haverford.

I use CHARMM, GROMACS and AMBER for my simulations and write a lot of Python code for analysis. I wrote and maintain the PyMOL-APBS plugin.

I also homebrew, of course.
