Hello,

Welcome to my online profile!

 

I am a doctoral student at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of British Columbia.

 

I do research at the interface of physics and biology. My goal is to become an independent researcher in the field of computational biophysics. Under the supervision of Dr Steven Plotkin at UBC, I currently use computational methods for the prediction of disease-specific epitopes for the treatment of Neurodegenerative diseases.
