As a biophysics PhD candidate under the guidance of Dr. Olga Gursky, my research project focuses on the structural basis for the interactions of amyloids with their cofactors. My training has included both experimental techniques (circular dichroism, HDX-MS, fluorescence spectroscopy) and computational methods (molecular dynamics, and protein docking). This project has resulted in three first-author publications. Beyond research, I have contributed to the BU community by serving as treasurer of the PhD student organization, and by working as a teaching assistant and tutor for multiple PhD-level courses.

As I transition from academia to industry, my unique background in both biophysical and computational biology will allow me to apply my skills to a wide array of scientific research areas. I am particularly interested in research related to amyloid diseases, metabolic disorders, and food science.
