I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. My advisor is Ileana Streinu and I am affiliated with the Linkage Laboratory. I have also worked at length with Oliver Brock, along with Frank Klassner and Lillian (Boots) Cassel at Villanova.

My current research is interdisciplinary at the intersection of computer science, biology, and chemistry. I use established graph algorithms to analyze and predict the rigid regions of molecules and to infer important structural properties of disease causing mutant proteins. A longer-term goal is to make progress towards large scale validation of rigidity analysis of molecules.

I co-develop (with Naomi Fox) the KINARI software, which uses an efficient graph-based algorithm to predict the flexible and rigid regions of biomolecules. Several of my contributions are KINARI-Mutagen, KINARI-CurationWeb, as well as tools for generating protein biological assemblies and crystals from Protein Data Bank files that contain only the asymmetric unit.
