I obtained my BSc. in Biology and Physics from Dalhousie University where I worked on an optimization algorithm for phylogenetic trees and, later, experimentally measured catalytic activity of racemases.

Previously as a MSc student at University of Waterloo and currently as a PhD candidate at TU/e, my work focuses on development of both polarizable and coarse-grained models of water for use in molecular dynamics simulations. My other projects include study of the structural changes of intrinsically disordered proteins in solution as well as simulation of electron conductance in a supramolecular polymer.

In my free time, I write computer games, train neural networks, and serve as a dungeon master for a small D&D group.
