I am a first year biophysics graduate student, currently studying the molecular motor dynein with Samara Reck-Peterson. My undergraduate institution was the Rochester Institute of Technology, where I studied biochemistry and physics (and Portuguese!).
My research has involved concentrated eye-lens crystallin protein analysis (read: soft condensed matter, ooo) with George Thurston, optical tweezers setup and bacteriophage packaging application with Douglas Smith, unconventional myosin crystallization with Jon Kull, and lifetime analysis on green fluorescent protein with Martin Gruebele.
