Personal Info

I currently work in the Imaging Sciences Laboratory within the Division of Computational Bioscience of the Center for Information Technology at the National Institutes of Health. My work includes computational aspects of biomolecular structure determination.

My previous position was as postdoctoral fellow and research staffer with Professor Gregory Voth in the Chemistry Department at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, after moving from the Chemistry Department of the University of Pennsylvania. There I worked on semiclassical approaches to low-temperature rate theory and on molecular aspects of the Utah ASCI Alliance project.

My first postdoc was with Professor John Delos, working on semiclassical methods applied to condensed matter and atomic systems. During this postdoc stint, I wandered about quite a bit. I spent time at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics at Harvard, the physics department at William and Mary, and at JILA at the University of Colorado.

My PhD was done at Princeton University in the Chemistry Department with Professor Herschel Rabitz during a more settled time. There I worked on quantum-coherent control theory applied to molecules.
