Short History

I became fascinated with de novo protein design during my PhD tenure under Prof. Leslie Dutton at the University of Pennsylvania. It was here that I was introduced to the ability of de novo proteins to interface with metals and organic cofactors in cells. I decided to intertwine computational and combinatorial de novo protein design to elucidate design principles of early enzymes as well as build novel catalysts for useful chemistry. In my spare time he enjoys SCUBA diving, backpacking in the wilderness, and doing ceramics.
