Where I came from

I'm a chemical engineering researcher. I develop new methods for closely integrating experiments and simulations of materials. I currently work with Prof. Greg Voth at the University of Chicago. I was awarded a PhD in in Chemical Engineering at University of Washington in 2013. At the University of Washington, I worked with Prof. Shaoyi Jiang and applied computational modeling to the discovery of new biomaterials, as well as understanding how nature interacts with biomaterials. Check out my research for more information or see my publications list. I also strongly support reproducibility in science and try to make my research accessible for others. I've created web-based applications where researchers can analyze their own data using my algorithms. I've also released datasets using SQLShare where anyone can access my raw data. Finally, I blog about my research.
I grew up in California and Washington state. I graduated from Rose-Hulman Instute of Technology in 2008 with a BS in chemical engineering. I also spent a year studying at the Otto-von Guericke Universität in Magdeburg, Germany. While living in Germany, I worked for six months in a microbiology lab at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems with Professor Hartmut Grammel. I completed a PhD in chemical engineering at the University of Washington from 2008-13. In addition to research and teaching, I tutor, snowboard and sometimes do graphical design. My artwork appeared in Science and Nature in 2010 and at the Visualization Center Museum in Sweden in 2013. You may read more about me in my Curriculum Vitae.
