I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and the Jay and Cynthia Ihlenfeld Faculty Scholar in the College of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research uses biomolecular simulation techniques to understand physicochemical interactions at biological interfaces, with the goal of designing new nanomaterials for biomedical applications.Previously, I was NIH NIGMS F32 Postdoctoral Scholar in the group of Thomas Miller at Caltech. I received both my B.S. and Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from MIT where I was advised by Alfredo Alexander-Katz. After defending my thesis in August 2014, I spent another four months as a postdoctoral associate in the Alexander-Katz group before moving to Caltech in January 2015.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Reid Van Lehn and other top speakers and celebrities.
