I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Central Washington University. My research interests are 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. I am also making progress towards a large-scale validation of rigidity analysis of molecules. Stop by to learn more; I'm always eager to talk science.
Teaching, Summer 2014
Teaching, Past courses taught: CS110, CS298, CS450, CS498, CS530, CS360S
Collaborations, past work, et cetera: While a graduate student in Ileana Streinu's Linkage Laboratory in the Computer Science Department at UMass Amherst, I co-developed (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. I have also worked with Oliver Brock, in leveraging principles from robotics to efficiently simulate the motion of biomolecules modeled as kinematic articulated chains.
