Hello! Welcome to my page, and let me take the time to tell you a little more about myself. I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA, and I attended my undergraduate at CU Boulder and the University of Georgia. In May 2023, I graduated UGA with my BS in computer science. I chose the path of bioinformatics so I can use my data science/software skills to help pioneer a relatively new realm of science. In my free time I love to ski, invest, play sports, hang out with friends, and eat raw cookie dough. Thank you for visiting my page, and if you want to get in touch, feel free to connect with me via email or LinkedIn!

Research Interests

In my lab, I am using machine learning algorithms (specifically a CNN) to create a generative AI that forms molecules that have a high probability of binding with a protein. My data is currently specific to AtSWEET1, a glucose transporter of which is one of the most important carbohydrates in plants, and it has a significant impact on crop yields. My software however is not specific to AtSWEET1, and I am hoping that through my work here at tech, it can be used as a general model for drug discovery in the future.
