I joined the Aksimentiev group in the Fall of 2013, after joining the physics Ph.D. at the University of Illinois. previously, I studied ZnO photovoltaic nanostructures while earning my B.S. degree in Physics from Michigan Technological University. I was lured away to the field of computational biophysics when I arrived in Illinois, where I used molecular dynamics simulations to study applications of DNA origami.
