Background and Research Interests

While at Williams I tackled problems in biochemistry, programming languages, and graphics. From 2017 to 2021, I worked at Facebook, first as a back-end product engineer for Messenger and then as a machine learning specialist for Facebook Healthcare and the Facebook AR/VR assistant.

I am currently interested in post-translational modification (PTM) crosstalk and the structural implications of PTM proteoform disease profiles. With a specific interest in improving cancer diagnostic and intervention beyond the realm of genetics and into the age of proteomics. In my spare time I love outdoor climbing, hiking, cello, banjo, poetry, pottery, painting!
