Portland, Oregon

Molecular biologist by my training in undergrad at CU-Boulder and jobs at Oregon Health and Science University. I am steadily becoming a bioengineer through programming projects and a Master's in Bioengineering starting spring 2013 at Rice University. At work, I evolve virus DNA in-silico with a multi-objective evolutionary algorithm which takes into account the molecular weight, charge, hydrophobicity and protein secondary structure of the mutated viruses. Then make the virus in real life.

I am also the web designer / marketer for a commercial Audio-Video company, which is why I do some html/css and have as my website. (please don't open on IE).

For fun / enjoyment, I eat the barnacles off of nuclear powered ice-breakers.
