I am a Ph.D. graduate student in the Wolynes group, a theoretical and computational biophysics research group at the Rice University CTBP. I graduated with a B.S. in Physics, with minors in biology and mathematics, from Texas Christian University in 2017. I also have an M.S. in Applied Physics from Rice University, under my thesis advisor Professor Peter Wolynes. I am interested in using theoretical models and computational techniques to better understand how evolution has optimized protein function and design, and to use evolutionary information to better refine protein structure predictions.
